The Top MBA Colleges Across India – Regional Rankings | InsideIIM MBA Rankings 2019

Recently, we released the list of the Top-45 Most Desirable Business Schools in 2019, with the top-5 spots being occupied by IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore, FMS Delhi and XLRI Jamshedpur, in that order. The rankings were compiled on the basis of responses gathered from hundreds of MBA aspirants who ranked B-schools based on their perception of the B-school’s brand. The B-schools in the report were spread out across the length and breadth of India – from Tiruchirappalli in the South to Mohali in the North, and Ahmedabad in the West to Shillong in the East.

While the list of India’s Most Desirable B-schools was a zoomed-out version of the B-school rankings, in this report, we delve deeper into the top MBA institutes across the 4 zones of India – North India, East India, West India and South India. We will also take a look at the Top-20 business schools in India, based on ownership, i.e., Private and State-Owned (Government).
