IIM Calcutta’s postgraduate programme in ‘Masters in Business Administration’ has been adjudged the best MBA course in the country and the 17th best globally in a worldwide study.
The programme fetched high scores in key parameters in the ‘Financial Times Masters in Management Rankings 2019’, helping it emerge as the best management programme in the country. Last year, the course was ranked at the 23rd place.
“This elevation in the ranking is a reflection of the quality of education provided by the institute and the final outcome of successful employment among the 2-Year MBA programme’s alumni”, an IIM Calcutta statement said.
Among the parameters that the ranking was focused on, IIM Calcutta did better than its Indian compatriots on categories such as today’s salary, weighted salary, salary percentage increase, career progress ranking, involvement of international faculty, inclusion of international board members, percentage of female faculty and student gender diversity ratio, the statement added.
“With the internationalisation of our curriculum over the years and some of the best faculty from across the world, our offerings are curated to address the needs of the dynamic business environment. The rankings will help us network more closely with the top B-schools across the globe,” Dean, New Initiatives and External Relations, Professor Prashant Mishra said.
As per the ranking list, IIM Ahmedabad’s two year PG programme in management was ranked 21 while the same programme offered by IIM Bangalore got the 44th place in the ranking list.
