The other seven B-schools in the top 10 list as per their rankings are – XLRI, NMIMS School of Business Management Mumbai, Faculty of Management Studies (University of Delhi), IIM Indore, Management Development Institute Gurgaon, S P Jain Institute of Management & Research Mumbai, and IIM Kozhikode. Five out of the top 10 B-schools are non-IIMs, a trend that signifies private institutes’ strive and urge to attain top slots.
The MBAUniverse.com B School Rankings 2013, the third one carried out by the portal, are primarily aimed at aspirants who are planning to join B schools of their choice in 2013, but are confused with respect to which institutes they should apply to. The most exclusive feature of the rankings is that no perception data has been used to arrive at the results.
All prominent B-schools participated in the survey. Only AICTE-recognized B-schools, offering full-time 2-year MBA programs were invited to take part. In case of B-schools run by private universities, the UGC recognition was the criterion. The ranking survey is based on a rigorous research methodology and has been conducted under the guidance of Padma Shree Dr Bakul Dholakia, former Director, IIM Ahmedabad, and Dr R K Shukla, former director, NCAER-Centre for Macro Consumer Research.
