What’s common between Ashish Hemrajani (Bigtree Entertainment), Bhavin Turakhia (Directi), Dippak Khurana (Vserv.mobi), Girish Mathrubootham (Freshdesk), and Kunal Shah (FreeCharge)? At the first instance, there seem to be nothing common between them except that they are all entrepreneurs. But when we delve little deeper to understand them, we come to know that they are all non-IIMs. They prove to the world that mavericks and gems can be crafted with passion, dedication, good education and a wonderful institute that need not to be an IIM. Unlike the perception that we hold while choosing our career education in Management field to join IIM, several institutes have proven that their education system and methodologies are beyond or at par with the IIMs of India. As parents, students and companies habitually do not look beyond IIMs, they fail an opportunity to get hold of something more valuable. Hence we at siliconindia Education bring to you ‘What if not IIMs! B-School Survey – 2017’ to help you enlighten about some of the prestigious institutes that are producing gems.

Today, there seems to be a huge gap between the industry and the academia. And a few IIMs are not able to create the number of leaders that industry needs. The featured institutes are playing an eminent role in bridging this gap by creating curriculums that are not just book-based but provide practical, on-the-job kind of training through internships with big companies and guest lecturers from prominent industrial faces. Understanding how important it is for freshers to be employable, these institutes have tied-up with corporates to let their students work on live projects under the guidance of professionals. This prepares them for the future challenges, and in many cases, a better performance have even locked job in the same company. Moving beyond traditional streams of management studies, these institutes provide courses that are internationally in demand. Institutes even have collaboration with foreign universities where students get the change for international exposure and gain ability to conquer the world.

We believe that this list created after a thorough research and survey will fit your check boxes and will help students shortlist their dream institute, while companies will be able to hire employees who fit their prerequisite. We wish you all the very best!
