Rank of Ranks 2018 for Indian B-Schools

One of the deciding elements for aspiring MBA students in choosing which B- School to attend is Ranking of the prospective B- Schools. The whole purpose of the ranking system is to identify and list the leading institutions by subject and region. Rankings can help the students, educationists, recruiters and others discover the best educational institutes in terms of quality of education, faculty, infrastructure, placements, research and other key factors that make any institution stand out from the rest. However, there is often a dilemma that is faced by many, most rankings list released by different sources vary from each other so drastically that one is left hanging mid-air. To resolve this issue, Career2NextOrbit team took it upon themselves to do some research and come out with a comprehensive list which will give all the perspectives to its readers at one place.

To achieve this objective, we analysed the rankings lists released by Business Today, Outlook, NHRDN, MBAUNIVERSE, NIRF and CAREERS360. We collected the data from these sources as their rankings were based on either partially or completely validated data. Out of these, NHRDN’s data was 100% validated.

Most seasoned researchers are aware that every research has got some amount of inherent bias. Bias in a research report may come in any form or component such as prejudiced questions from an interviewer or answers of the respondent or an incorrect interpretation and consideration by the moderator. However, researchers are also aware that more the number of observation lesser is the inherent bias. That’s the primary reason why we have considered the six rankings to come up with our study of ‘ranking of rankings’

For this purpose, we made use of the Structured Data Collection techniques and included the names of all the colleges that featured in the top MBA institutes of any of these six rankings (Business Today, Outlook, NHRDN, MBAUNIVERSE, NIRF and CAREERS360) to arrive at one conclusive ranking of rankings list.

Hope this comprehensive list will help our readers make judicious decisions.

One can rightly point out that the colleges having high Standard Deviation (S.D.) of the rankings have either participated in lesser rankings or some of the parameters selected for calculating the overall rank may not have been taken into consideration properly. The S.D. cannot be calculated for the colleges that didn't participate in atleast 2 rankings.


All the Best in the search for your perfect B-School!
