Regarded as one of India’s most credible B-school Ranking, the 10th edition of MBAUniverse.com Rankings 2020 has been released on December 14, 2019. The Ranking is out now and offers plenty of surprises and learnings! IIM Bangalore has been awarded number one position while IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Calcutta have earned number 2 and 3 positions respectively. The Ranking also notes the rapid rise of new IIMs into the top league table. At the same time, top private B-schools like XLRI, SPJIMR, MDI and NMIMS have steadfastly held on to their leadership, despite stiff competition.  

Since inception, MBAUniverse.com Ranking is based only on ‘Objective Data’ and no ‘Perception Survey’ is used. Designed exclusively for MBA Aspirants, ranking is based on 360-degree assessment that fairly balances the three pillars of a B-school: Input (students admitted/peers), Processes (academics, research, accreditation, infrastructure) and Outcomes (placements). More than 150 B-schools participated in the MBAUniverse.com Ranking 2020, while only 75 top B-schools have been ranked. 

Key Highlights of MBAUniverse.com Ranking 2020 are:

  • IIM Bangalore is the new No 1 B-school in India closely followed by IIM Ahmedabad at #2 Rank and IIM Calcutta #3 Rank.

With very strong showing in Placements (at par with Top 3 IIMs) and improvements in Academics scores (Research & Accreditation), SPJIMR Mumbai (Ranked #5) has not only moved ahead of MDI Gurgaon but also of IIM Lucknow and IIM Indore in the MBAUniverse.com Rankings 2020.
  • New IIMs like IIM Udaipur, IIM Trichy and IIM Rohtak have all shown significant all-round improvements. After 8-9 years of hard work to establish, their Placements have improved very significantly, and are attracting good faculty.
