"Beyond IIMs" B-School Survey - 2014

For the 2012 - 2014 batches, it has been observed that one of the IIMs that offer close to 400 seats for management program received 173,866 applications. Of the 173,866 applications received, only 0.25 percent was offered seats in the institute. A similar condition was seen across the remaining 12 IIMs throughout the country. This, however, left many students disheartened as they consider pursuing an MBA degree from the numerous IIMs as a front row seat to a very bright corporate career.  Many aspirants find themselves pondering: "What will I do now", "Is this the end of my MBA dream?" The answer is No. Higher Education Review - presents "Beyond IIMs" - B-Schools Survey 2014, that focuses on the non IIM, private B-Schools in India. Over the years, there have been many private business schools which have emerged, reached and surpassed the levels that the IIMs have attained. At HER, we understand that it is important to bring out the names of the best private B-Schools in our country that have the capabilities to produce quality workforce, entrepreneurs, innovators and corporate heroes par excellence as seen in the IIMs. These institutes are competent enough to produce the best Business talent for India and abroad.
