PaGaLGuY B-school Rankings 2011
India's Most Preferred B-schools

Welcome to the PaGaLGuY B-school Rankings 2011. Between December 2010 and February 2011, we polled 7,931 MBA aspirants, students, alumni, academics, recruiters and others to find out the definitive rankings of India's Most Preferred B-schools.

Traditionally, B-schools rankings have been trying to tell us which MBA programs we should be looking at in the coming admissions season. However, none of them have succeeded in capturing the order of business schools that Indians actually want to study at, despite what these rankings advise. We thus decided to place the power of deciding India's top ranked MBA schools in the hands of the people in an unbiased manner using PaGaLGuY's CommunityRank methodology to produce these rankings.

The results of the survey are now before you - you may start by either looking at the rankings as per everyone who voted , women or those with work experience . Or you may want to read the analysis of the rankings to understand some of the possible reasons behind the ranks.

Don't forget to read exclusive opinion columns by stalwarts from the management education sector on subjects such as MBA return on investment, computer-based testing standards and quality, entrepreneurship and b-schools, faculty crunch at b-schools and more.

For those interested in understanding how we arrived at the rankings, read our methodology . Note, that this is not a ranking of India's Best B-schools, but of India's Most Preferred B-schools. Please interpret this ranking as indicative of what your peers think about India's B-schools.
