Can you share rankings based on who provides the best HR course?

admin
Guest

Hi Rachana,
For MBA in HR, Xavier Labour Research Institute (XLRI) Jamshedpur has the best course in India followed by Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai, Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD) Pune and Management Development Institute (MDI) Gurgaon.

how is mba at gitam school of international business?

admin
Guest

Hi Sriniketh,
Currently, Gitam school of international business hasn’t been ranked by us. However, if you are considering admission in that college, a good recommendation would be to talk to the Alumni of that college and ask them about the following factors:
1. Quality of Faculty
2. Placements
3. Facilities
These three factors would help you make your decision.
Good luck!

Dear Sir,

Thanks very much for sharing the list.

Can you help me in getting information for Bits Pilani for MBA. Also can you share the 2015 CAT cut off marks & placements at Bits Pilani.

Alok
Guest

Dear Author, you have placed new IIMs in tier 2 ..with KJ Somaiya and all. Don’t you think you shuld be more informed and then gives the rating, as it hampers other aspirants for making informed choice. Sorry for such long sentence.

admin
Guest

Dear Alok,
Brand name (that too borrowed) is not the only factor affecting college ranking. The new IIMs still have a long way to go in ensuring faculty quality, placements and alumni network – the key factors which influence ranking. That’s the reason they are ranked below the well established colleges who have these processes set.

Ritesh

Dear Admin , How is Lala LajpatRai in Mumbai for MBA.
Pl. advise and give ranking if any.

lokesh sahu
Guest

Sir you have put pumba and various symboisis college in the list but not SIES and N.L.DALMIA which I feel are better than some of the colleges mentioned above.. Please consider this suggeston

Sachin B

Hi,

Could you please provide the rankings for MBA colleges in Karnataka alone? It will help me in choosing better college. Thanks.

Regards,

admin
Guest

Unfortunately we do not have state specific MBA rankings. I would advise you not to constrain yourself to one state. If you get a good college anywhere in the country, spending two years out-of-state may be well worth it.

rohit agarwal

Hi admin,

What college would you suggest for Operations Management, MBA?
among tier 1 and tier 2 colleges.

niharika singh

i am thinking to go for SIMS pune
i am from general category
would u recommend it for HRM
what is the average placement package?

admin
Guest

SIMS has pretty good placements overall. For HRM, you should consider colleges like XLRI and SCMHRD first. That said, HRM placements at SIMS are good too.

Dinesh Yadav

hello sir,
i am an engineering graduate, i am my with my B.E program in computer engineering, i would like to know whether i should go directly for MBA? or should i first go to MS? i would like to work in india once i m done with my studies. help me

admin
Guest

MBA and MS are totally different tracks. What you should do depends on what you think you will be good – if you think you will be a great computer engineer, then go for MS. If you want to make a career in management or change your track from CS to finance or marketing, then go for MBA. The only one who can answer this question is you. Remember, if you love what you do and you are good at what you do, then success will find you. All the best.

How is one year PGPM course at Chennai campus of Great Lakes Institute of Management ?

admin
Guest

The course is good, however, the one year courses at ISB Hyderabad and IIM Lucknow (Noida Campus) are much better.

nikil
Guest

I have done my engineering. Now opting for MBA since I didn’t get any job after BE. Which course would be better to get many job opportunities? Does anyone have idea about Sri Krishna College of Engineering and Technology, Coimbatore?

admin
Guest

“Now opting for MBA since I didn’t get any job after BE” – This is not a good approach and there is no guarantee that MBA will give you a job. The correct approach would be to figure out what you like and what you are good at, and then choose either a Masters in Engineering or an MBA accordingly. No matter what course you choose, ensure that you study well so that you are able to secure a job after passing out.

Can u plz tell about the placements of IMT Nagpur? And is it a good choice to make as I had already cleared its GDPI process?

deepika tripathi
Guest

IIMB comes after IIMC…I thought it was IIM A, B,C …please give some points actually I’m a naive here.

admin
Guest

Deepika, There is little to choose between them. IIMC is almost a decade older hence has stronger alumni presence in the industry. IIMC is more valued for Finance, whereas IIMB is widely popular as a general purpose MBA.

deepika tripathi
Guest

Thank you sir…its a great help…thanks a lot…and why does ISB Hyderabad ranked 2nd?

AV

Egghead
Guest

How are institutes whose admissions are based on AIMA UGAT (Under Graduate Aptitude Test)? In which tier do they fall? Only Nirma is listed above. However, good institutes like Kalinga (KIIT) Buubaneshwar seem to be left out.

Dear Sir.
I have taken MBA admission in welingkar institute—Mumbai In operation management.
But actually I want to go with Project management. As per specialist Operation management also having major subject in PM.
So may I know whether the direct Project management (Only few colleges are offering this course) is valuable than Operation management (specialization in PM). And what is the placement rating in Welingkar–Mumbai.

Regards,
Ravindra

OMG this website has given IMI, Delhi such a poor ranking. I would want to know the authenticity of this report. Considering the reputation of companies and packages offered at IMI last year, I must say it seems like this report isn’t well researched. Period.
