February - 2017 issue > What If Not IIMs! B-School Survey 2017  

As per an internationally acclaimed business website, IIM-A is one of the tenacious institutes with acceptance rate of 0.25 percent. Acceptance into other IIMs like Bangalore and Calcutta is no walk in the park either, with only a handful being able to make the cut out of two lakh aspirants who register for the famed CAT exam. In a nation like ours, where the premier government institutes are kept on a pedestal, the parents and students are in dilemma of pursuing the unconventional management institutes and are plagued by the questions regarding their credibility. These institutes today seek to be the avenger for those who couldn’t make their way into the IIMs and are going beyond the conventional means of managerial education that are majorly focused on holistic development.

Introduction of international programmes, specialised courses, centres of excellence for hands on trainings, startup support system and flexible curriculum are creating new spectrum for moulding the future managers. State governments and prominent business leaders are now placing their bets on these young players as well and are entering alliances for industrial exposure and consultancies. There are close to 5000 B-Schools altogether and combating with such diverse choices can prove to be a mammoth task. It can be challenging and time consuming to zero in on the perfect institute that would complement the educational requirements of the students. Bearing this conundrum in mind, siliconindia Education’s ‘What if Not IIMs! B-School Survey’ has been curated to aid our readers with a thorough research, in depth information and highly furnished answers pertaining to the policies, practices and functionalities of these private institutions.


The aim objective behind releasing this survey is to empower the students and their parents with the knowledge of existing private business schools and the versatile experiences they can garner. It will arm them with the potential of making informed choices that can go a long way in building a lucrative career. Through this survey, siliconindia Education aims on assisting numerous MBA aspirants, companies and institutes, and answer questions pertaining to the listed institutions.


The survey is initiated with a compilation of an exhaustive list of contemporary management institutes where each is approached with a highly detailed questionnaire targeting their functionality, facilities, student-professor ratio and educational offerings where 60 percent of invited institutes opt to participate in the survey. The institutes are rendered credits based on their self declared answers that undergo a stringent audit and scrutiny that helps in arriving at fair results. A detailed assessment on admissions, infrastructure, faculty experience, pedagogy, industry interaction, curriculum, placements, alumni and accreditation (A+, A++, A+++) also plays a vital role for rating the credibility of the institution and its stakeholders. On the other hand, this survey also takes a fresh perspective on proffering of contemporary courses like Family Business Management Programme and many more and gives it due consideration for affirming plausibility of the participating institutions.
