List of Business Schools in India | B Schools Ranking |

Best B Schools from T.I.M.E
MBA is one of the most aspired for Post Graduate qualifications in India. While 3000+ schools exist in the country to satisfy the demand for MBA, only a handful of these B-Schools impart quality education and churn out leaders. It is not a simple task to be able to shortlist these top B-Schools, given that the definition of ‘top’ varies between people and across years. The matter is further complicated by the fact that a lot of B-Schools make exaggerated claims just to stay relevant. It therefore becomes crucial for aspirants to see through the clutter and identify these ‘top’ B-Schools. It is necessary that they understand the key parameters of evaluating B-Schools. Once these are understood, they can compare B-Schools on these parameters and arrive at a list of good schools that they can consider. This is a complex process as it needs a lot of research and then the ability to use the information in a meaningful manner.
With the objective of helping our students to make the right decision without going through this complex process, we release a list of India’s top B-Schools annually. This list segregates B-Schools into various categories, thereby aiding the students in choosing the set of B-Schools to apply to. This list is made using a methodology that has a proven track record of over a decade, after months of extensive research by experts who have over two decades of experience in guiding students on Indian MBA admissions.
New IIMs versus Non IIMs?
Some students are not very sure about joining the newer IIMs. They should know that the newer IIMs have been witnessing very encouraging placements, both for final and summer internships. Whether it is the average salary in final placements (around 12 lakh) or the quality of companies visiting their campuses, the IIMs should certainly be preferred over most non-IIM B-Schools, more importantly for the long term brand advantage that one can enjoy. A case in point is that of IIM Kozhikode and IIM Indore. Just about a decade ago, they were the ‘new IIMs’. Now, there is almost none who would think twice about joining them. Similar was the case with IIM Lucknow in the late 1980s. Remember, it is only a matter of time before the new IIMs shed their ‘new’ tag. In fact, they are already on the path to lose their ‘new’ tag to the six more IIMs to be set up in the states of Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Bihar, Odisha, Maharashtra, and Andhra Pradesh as announced by the Government of India in the Union Budget 2014-15.
