Top B Schools In India
We took samples from credible sources around the web, sources such as these and many more that were available. We deliberately tried to avoid sources which provide scrupulous data that goes against common sense.
Weights were assigned to each of these sources ranking systems, the data was tabulated and the colleges were arranged in order of increasing scores, with the lowest score being the best. Scores here represent the relative rank each college holds at each our source.
Some degree of skewness was expected, like IIM – Indore made the cut at this place, and even though we considered the source survey, it did not make to the final list overall. There are many good institutions which could not make the cut due to such reasons.
Advantages of this Method
While ranking MBA colleges, there are certain traits that each assessor assumes and sometimes this leads to absurd skewnesss. By considering the assessors as a sample itself, we are able to present a credible picture of what the B schools ranking represents in general.
Admission to these Top Colleges
While each college has its own selection criteria, there are certain elements that are pretty common. Most of these colleges have the following stages:
- Entrance Test
- Group Discussion/Case Studies/Personal Interview/Group Interviews
The B schools may choose to opt for one or more of the above. Normally, at least two of the three stages mentioned above forms the part of B school admissions in India. So without much adieu, here is the list.
