ISB got into top 20 Best B-schools in the world

The Indian School of Business (ISB) has been listed as one among the top 20 global B-schools by the Financial Times annual MBA 2008 rankings. The achievement is particularly notable, as the ISB is the first B -school from India, to have found a place in the FT’s B-school league table.

This is a landmark event for the ISB. It sums up our single-minded goal to be recognised as a global centre of excellence in business education. This ranking is an important milestone in our journey to be an internationally top-ranked research-driven, and independent management institution that grooms leaders for the world. -M Rammohan Rao, Dean


You might wondering why IIM is not in the list?

Financial Times methodology includes the following:

To be eligible to participate, a business school must be internationally accredited by a body such as the AACSB, AMBA or EQUIS…

ISB has AMBA accredition. I am not sure if the IIMs goverened by the Indian Government are yet accredited to AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS. IIM A was seeking EQUIS accredition in Dec 2006. So I guess the IIMs were not even eligible to participate in these rankings.

Four things make this a very significant achievement:

    This is the first time a business school from India has achieved a place in the global top 100 !
    ISB is probably the youngest institution ever to find a place in this list. The school just started 6 years back!!
    This is the first time ISB participated in the rankings and it achieved a position in the top 20 straightaway !!!
    If you visit ranking page and sort by weighted salary, you will see ISB on top. It means rank no: 1 in the world. Humm? Lets take it as fresh breath of reality.
