Top B-Schools List

01 June, 2022

There are 3000+ B-Schools in India and students often get confused about narrowing down to a list of B-Schools that they may wish to apply. Choosing a B-School to pursue an MBA requires one to consider many factors – the reputation the B-School enjoys, the career opportunities it opens up, the placement track record, the fees, the legacy, and the infrastructure are the primary factors a student considers.

To help a student shortlist the B-School he should apply to, IMS has recommended a list of Top B-Schools in the country based on placement track record, tuition fees, brand name, infrastructure, faculty strength, location, and feedback from students amongst other factors.
