View Full Version : Business Today Best B-School Rankings out!!
09-24-2004, 05:12 PM
Business Today has arguably the most authentic and comprehensive rankings of Indian business schools. The survey is based on feedback from India’s HR Heads. Using the Brand Equity Index the ranking also takes into account the perceptions of recruiters, functional heads, alumni, and wannabe MBA students. The study was carried out by Business Today ACNielson ORG-MARG and is the seventh edition of what is probably India’s most respected source.
The survey ranks the Top 30 schools on a brand equity score on ten and answers some very important questions for prospective recruiters and students alike.
Which is India’s truly global business school?
Which B-School offers the best placement?
The value of an MBA?
For all those in School and those wanting to get in - check it out.
(IN THE INTERESTS OF NOT CREATING ANOTHER HULLABULLOO HAVE NOT MENTIONED THE RANKINGS)

How come we have schools like Symbiosis,ICFAI in top 10 and schools like NITIE,SPJain and SJMSOM out of it?
And frankly the difference between the top school and the next is not quite as is made out to be in the rankings
It is indeed time to get out of the aura that the perceivedly no:1 insti enjoys.
Check out the field and we find that top management is sprinkled by performers from almost every institute worth its name
Advice for freshers who are on the lookout for an MBA education - if you are not in the 99 percentile and fail to get a call from the top 3...all is not lost...there are other schools which are eager to take a look at you and show you the way towards making a difference to both "Corporate" dom and Society...
And rankings may change (even for venal reasons) but fundamentals never change.Look at the findamentals of an institute...alumni,average salary during placements,time to place,Brand Equity,talk to alumni if possible.

There is definitely a difference between ivy league, better B schools, B schools and non-so-B-schools. Well, whom are you comparing yourself to, or for that matter your alumni to. If you are considering your alumni to non-so-b-schools. BINGO!!! you are right. But if you are trying that with better b-schools or ivy leagues....me running away man.
In any case, the place one comes from is a sure indication of this mental prowess and ability to put forward logical answers. Dont see them coming from the direction you standing in...
So dude..take a chill pill. The best friend a man has is his courage to face truth. See to it that yours doesnt elude you. In B-school parlance: You are still on maslow's second stange..hope after some donkeys years you will graduate to 5th stage...and hope by that time its not too late for you.
PS: Heights by great men reached and kept,
were not attained by sudden flights,
but while their companions slept,
they toiled high up in the nights.

10-04-2004, 05:13 PM
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
come on dude. IMI is not even top 15. Gimme a break. Lemme give u a list of top 15 (with out any order)
IIMA, B, C, L, K, I, XLRI, SPJAIN, MDI,NITIE, FMS, JBIMS, NMIMS, IIFT, Symbiosis. of these IMI is better than no one. for heavens sake even IMT Ghaziabad, TAPMI, GIM is better than IMI-with all its corporate honchos :D :D
Guess u need some re-vitalizers. Good u like ur alma mater.
10-04-2004, 08:50 PM
ur opinion is ur opinion.....mine is mine...n d corpos r their own......n blive me corpos regularly state dat IMI is in their top 15 list....n buddy in corporate satisfaction....IMI is above some of the big 15 u mentioned...n dis fact is well known....again i state dat d opinions differ among d corpos...but corpo satisfaction scores comes 4m ppl who have appointed ppl 4m dat respective b-schools....
n ur statement dat tapmi n gim is better dan us....den y didn't they receive invitaion 4 d biggest b-plan event INDIA has ever seen THE ITC B-PLAN contest......budddy corpo perception can b surely felt when they organise events like this.....n if u have nee doubt abt dis check out d ITC Mera Gaon Mera Desh contest.....IMI is in d same cluster as MDI n IMT....
buddy lets stop dis crap abt 'my daddy strongest' feeling......i'll only say dat 'future will decide who was right u or me'.......
hope u'll realize it.....n let dis forum b a place 4 constructive discussions
10-05-2004, 12:25 PM
dude, those categorizations are not on the basis of perception. I dont love MDI, but forheavens sake, dont compare urself to them. They may not be in the same league as IIM ABC, but they are okay with SPjain, FMS and NITIE. OK.
Baaki bacha, how good or bad u r. I wish someday God pitts me against you. Will give u some answers, that u badly need to survive. Pata nahi kahan kahan se aa jaate hai. IMI...PMI..KMI aur to nahi hai koi collge aisa.
10-05-2004, 02:21 PM
may dat day of facing u come early dude...me 2 want 2 prove some points.......n i thought ITC knew better dan u when dey stated dat their selection of colleges was based on their corporate perceptions.....but now u may say kaun itc ytc....stc.....n atc.... :lol:
c v know where v stand n v dont want ppl like u 2 even know where v stand....4 us corpos opinion yield more importance dan urs...so plz let d world decide.....n let u n me with d other ppl b d players.....
10-05-2004, 04:02 PM
This is where u show ur pedigree dudey. ITC knows better than me..and i Know better than ITC. U cant ever get over the inferiority complex of someone else knowing better than you. For you : (In Urdu)

a very interesting debate between Xl and IMI. just wanna add if ITC plan is any indication then NITIE does not figure in this ITC plan, in other words NITIE was not even considered for invitation. Any clue??? i think curtz wud hav sumthin to add-Symbiosis better than NITIE??? may b yes?? wats say guys
10-06-2004, 04:53 PM
Samuel Johnson said "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel". Curtz is almost there. I am sure, Gentleman-that curtz is, couldnt escape the travesty of "I. Me and IMI". I indeed did say in my last post, ITC business contest is not worth much. But then for Curtz its a big deal. Guess, ITC doesnt visit IMI even after these poor chaps accepting differential salaries of lowest order.
Hey dude curtz, how much do you earn? Lets compare it amongst ourselves :-)
10-06-2004, 09:26 PM
