Business Today B-School Ranking 2011: IIM A looses number one position to IIM B
CAT 2011 is officially out of bag and aspirants are busy—employing day and night in preparing hard to crack this tough MBA nut. It is time around when aspirants choose which b-schools to apply for to pursue MBA.
B-School rankings have always been a good way of shortlisting b-schools to apply for.
Business Today have come up with its latest issue of b-school ranking—BT B-school Rankings 2011. Coinciding with the basic nature of b-school rankings, this ranking too is packed with ‘finger biting’ surprises—number one being IIM Ahmedabad placed at 3 on the ranking ladder after IIM Bangalore and IIM Calcutta.
IIM Ahmedabad has consistently remained on number one position in BT b-school ranking and other rankings too. It is for the first time in near history when IIM A is demoted from its long held position. Another surprising and unusual trend noticed this year is 6 IIMs (IIM B, C, A, I, L and K – in that order) topping the chart leaving behind private institutions like IIFT Delhi (7), ISB Hyderabad (8), XLRI Jamshedpur (10) and FMS Delhi (11).
B-Schools who scored well
New entries like IIM Kozhikode (6), IIM Shillong (9), SCMHRD Pune (12), DMS IIT Delhi (14) and S P Jain Mumbai (15) ranked well. IIM Ahmedabad, though left poorer in overall ratings, still tops the chart in terms of reputation. TISS Mumbai which was at 32nd position last year made it to number 18 this time.
B-Schools that left poorer
If there were b-schools who jumped the ranking ladder with a big leap, there were some who lost hugely. DMS IIT Roorkee which was at number 17 last year is placed at 29th position this time. K J Somaiya which followed DMS IIT Roorkee last year is a close associate this time too, as it fell down the ladder to 30th position.
