It is important to note that FT Global MBA Rankings rank IIM Bangalore’s EPGP, IIM Ahmedabad’s PGPX and IIM Calcutta’s PGPEX program, and NOT their 2-year programs. This is because FT Rankings require compulsory prior work-experience for any program to be ranked in their MBA rankings. While IIMs One Year MBA Programs require compulsory work-experience, it is not a necessary condition for admission to 2 year MBA/PGPM programs.
