This is our first initiative to connect with B-schools and the future business professionals.
(PRWEB) July 26, 2008
In a first of its kind on Indian Television, Zee Business, India's leading business news channel from the house of Zee News Ltd, conducted a Business School survey on India's top 25 b-schools in association with international research firm Synovate.
The survey threw up interesting findings with Indian Institute of Management -- Ahmedabad bagging top slot for best placements, infrastructure, industry interface and course content and Indian Institute of Planning & Management (IIPM) getting ranked as the best b-school in global exposure.
Talking on the occasion, Barun Das, CEO, Zee News Ltd, said "This is our first initiative to connect with B-schools and the future business professionals."
"The key aspect that will set our survey apart from the many B-school surveys in the country will be our focus on the Global Linkages - be it Global Placements, International Internships or Global Faculty," says Raktim Das, business head, Zee Business.
"Our methodology is a very robust one. We are polling all the stakeholders of a B-school, comprising MBA wannabes, recruiters, young executives, current MBAs, and management school faculty," says Samir Ahluwalia, editor, Zee Business. "We are not trying to quantify parameters that are debatable such as the number of academic papers written by the B-school's faculty or how many books it has in its library or how big is the campus," Ahluwalia adds.
The survey was carried out across the top 10 cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Patna, Guwahati, Lucknow, Jaipur and Ahmedabad and key results are as follows:
1 IIM - Ahmedabad
2 IIM - Bangalore
3 IIM - Calcutta
4 FMS (Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi)
