Business Standard has revealed BS Best B-School Survey 2012, in association with IMRB International, a leading market research agency in India.


Unlike the traditional, the survey has not ranked b-schools in a number order but has put them in 14 hierarchical categories: Super League 1, Super League 2, A1 through A8, and B1 through B4.


B-Schools which are placed in Super League 1 are Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Kolkata, Indore, Management Development Institute, Gurgaon, National Institute of Industrial Engineering, Mumbai, Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar and XLRI, Jamshedpur.


B-Schools appearing in Super League 2 are Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai, Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode, Institute of Management, Nirma University, Ahmedabad, Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad, Institute of Management Technology, Nagpur, International Management Institute, New Delhi, Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai, KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies & Research, Mumbai, SP Jain Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai and SVKMs Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai.


Though BS played it safe not ranking b-schools, but putting them in hierarchical brackets, it still has come to everybodys astonishment, as leading b-schools like FMS Delhi, IIFT New Delhi completely missing from top 2 leagues and b-schools like IMT Nagpur and KJ Somaiya being included.


According to BS, the audit module accounted a range of elements such as intellectual capital, infrastructure, admissions and placements, industry interface, governance and the scale of operations, each of which can be measured objectively. The perception scores take into account the viewpoint of the industry and the alumni.


We would like to have your views about this survey. Please feel free to post as comments.
