B-School status: The alumni verdict
For the first time in the country we have ranked India’s top 75 B-schools on the basis of the companies where their alumni are employed and the type of profiles they enjoy....… inal placement is the culmination of a long and winding journey that every MBA-holder undertakes and the beginning of a new professional journey. A good start goes a long way in providing sustained growth for any aspirant. Hence the craze to get into a good school, where placement is not only assured, but a great profile too is ensured. So far students had only the take of peers as well as disjointed news items to guide them as to the kind of jobs one can get when he or she joins a college. To help the student plan better, we for the first time, have attempted to look at the kind of placements that an MBA aspirant can look forward to when he applies to a school. Since colleges are very cagey about providing the info we turned to the next available source -- LinkedIn. We identified at least 200 colleges which have been ranked by one or the other publication and attempted to see the kind of profiles its alumni present to the world. We narrowed InstItute Indian School of Business Hyderabad Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIM-C) Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI), Jamshedpur Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM-B) Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM-A) Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM-L) IIT Bombay (Shailesh J Mehta School of Management) SP Jain Institute of Management & Research (SPJIMR) Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIM-K) Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) Management Development Institute (MDI) National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) IIT Roorkee (Department of Management Studies) University of Delhi - Faculty of Management Studies (FMS Delhi) 122
our search to those who passed out in 2012 so that only entry level jobs come into our database. Nearly 73 colleges had no or a few profiles on LinkedIn. After the firstlevel scanning, we identified 132 colleges for which at least 50 profiles were available. After scanning 15,801 profiles we could finally gain access to 5231 profiles. We grouped the profiles on the basis of type of firm (MNC, publicly listed and emerging) as well the type of profile (managers, deputy managers etc and executives). Each profile was categorised into one of the nine categories and analysed. The results were amazing. Top ranking colleges had substantial managerial profiles. For e.g. ISB, the topper, had almost no executive profile. We have only presented the aggregate ranking. In the coming days we will present a pen picture of each college in terms of the kind of companies where the students are employed, type of work, location, and growth possibilities. Look forward to the Alumni Page to be launched soon at www.bschool.careers360.com. Happy reading....
