TISS unarguably the best HR institute in country

It is a well know fact that IIM’s are the most prestigious institutes of our country when it comes to management studies. They have been the proven winner for last several decades.

Ask any mba aspirant in the country and he will tell you that they are the best even if he doesn’t know anything about MBA.


There are only a few institutes who have seriously challenged IIM’s authority all these years. And if there is any institute worthy of it, It is Tata Institute of Social Sciences. TISS has emerged as the best institute for management studies in HR. Many institutes would argue on this statement but deep down their heart they know that TISS is the Numero Uno when it comes to MBA-HR.


However, Its been ranked as 32nd best B-school of the country (Just below IIPM Delhi) according to Business Today's latest survey which obviously is a shock for those who have been in this business for quite some time now. This has only stressed on the fact that one should not believe in these rankings blindly.

MBA rankings are very dubious. One never find the methodology (must for such kind of survey) of these surveys. TISS is known for it's extensive social science research, & students like Medha Patkar came out of this institute.

I just want to add that it should be "TATA Institute of Social Sciences" not "Tata Institute if Social Sciences".

I am a student of Habitat Studies at TISS and I'd like to remind all readers that TISS is not really a Management or an HR school, Although it has a School of Management Studies. TISS is really in institute for Social Sciences and the broad focus is on transforming social biases and pushing for a equitable distribution of resources by influencing public policy. The School of Management Studies focuses on how this can be achieved through the active involvement of the Corporate Sector...
The HR Program seems to be the only program that is more Corporate Sector oriented
Hence I do not think it fits in to B School Rankings.
