MHRD NIRF MBA Rankings 2019 – Analysis And Review | How Much Sense Do These Rankings Make?

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), since 2016, has undertaken a project of establishing rankings for educational institutes in India under the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) at the graduation and post-graduation level, including management institutes. Recently, the NIRF MBA Rankings 2019 have also been released by the MHRD.

But how much sense do these rankings make? How accurate are they in representing the true picture of India’s top business schools?

Don’t agree a bit with the MHRD rankings. I don’t know what are the metrics and formula they apply to make the rankings.

Top 20 B-Schools are:
1.IIM A
2.IIM B
3.IIM C
4.ISB
5.FMS
6.XLRI
7.IIM L
8.IIM K
9.IIM I
10.JBIMS
11.SP JAIN
12.MDI
13.IIFT
14.NITIE
15.SJMSOM
16,17,18,19,20.IIM TRICHY, UDAIPUR, KASHIPUR, RAIPUR, RANCHI

Yeah, right, maybe IIM Shilling can slot in after Sjmsom, because only factor with IIM Shilling compared to SJMSOM is IIM tag, otherwise location, ROI and even placements at SJMSOM are slightly better than IIM-S

Some what okay but you should keep 2 of the old IITs(Delhi and Kgp) above all the new IIMs because of many factors including established alumni, brand recognition, average and median salaries, support from larger IIT ecosystem, faculties and facilities and finally ROI so no rankings is honest if they don’t place the three IITs (SJMSoM, VGSoM and DMS(iit delhi)) in top 20.

I did placed the SJMSOM above new IIM’s
And with IIT KGP, I felt very few will chose VGSOM IIT-KGP if they got acceptance letter from maybe IIM Trichy. IIT Delhi can come equivalent to New IIM’s in ranking, but again IIM brand matters and these IIM’s are now 7-8 years old, almost all have permanent campus and infrastructure and placements are getting better each YoY.

XIMB should have been there ahead of the new IIMs like Kashipur and Raipur. XIMB is way ahead of these institutes in terms of alumni base as well as the average packages.
