‘You must make up your mind and decide that out of the available options, you will choose the best MBA College irrespective of the fact whether it is one of the 20 IIMs or any other B-school.’


Getting admission to B-School is not one way but a two way process. Along with you choosing the best management institute, the institute should also choose you. As each and every institute want to have the best brains. All aspirants have been dreamed about and would like to join the top management institutes but what if you don’t get selected by these institutes? Dear aspirants, the fact is that, everyone wants to get through IIMs but the top Management institute doesn’t have enough number of seats to cater to all the management aspirants, so if you can’t make it to IIM’s, it would be a wise decision to join a good Management Institute, which is AICTE and AIU approved and have good ROI and proves to be good on the parameters discussed in this blog.

The task of choosing a right Business-School has become even more difficult today because there is no standard parameter or universally acceptable criteria in our country. Of late, a number of surveys have been carried out by leading magazines which further aggravate confusion in the minds of the aspirant. Now there are many queries and questions popping up your mind – how to choose this best MBA college? Right at the onset, then there are a few important parameters or factors that you have to weigh in before making your decision.

  • Ø Accreditation: Out of the 3200+ odd B-schools in the country, just over 1,000 are accredited B-Schools. Accreditation assures quality education, financial aid opportunities and credit transfer etc. There are higher chances of getting a job in reputed companies if you are a student from an accredited B-School.
  • Ø Check for the courses offered: While going through the details about the B-school, you need to check for the MBA / PGDM programmes offered by the management institute. If you are interested in MBA Finance and the B-school does not offer specialization in it, there is no point of opting for the said MBA College. In fact you should first figure out what is your career goal and which is the relevant MBA programme for you to help you achieve your goal.
  • Ø Legacy of the MBA College: Alumni are the mirror of any institute; the profile of alumni determines the reputation of an institute and makes it stand tall. The truth that Old is Gold has not yet gone wrong when deciding on the B-schools. The legacy not only reflects its position on placement year after year but also proves the sustainability and growth of the institute over a period of time. The older the B-school, higher is its alumni base that leads to great placement. If you are not satisfied with the profile of alumni, be cautious.
  • Ø Enticements: In the age of cut-throat competition, institutions have made enticements one of the important tools to attract students. Enticements include giving laptops, text books, free lunch and taking for few days on foreign tours (which they call Study Tours!!).

           Don’t let yourself carried away by these kinds of freebies because at the end of the day they will make you pay. Do research to               avoid swindlers. Do not let attractive advertisements make house in your mind. See the veracity of advertisement before any                 move. In addition to it, never select a B-School by its ranking because it varies to a great extent.

  • Ø Profile of Faculty - Learning depends on it: Core faculty at the B school decides the learning experience in imparting the education at the institute and is the main factor in providing adequate mentorship to the students.  The better is the faculty student ratio, the better will be the mentorship at the institute. A good institute needs a blend of faculty – academicians and industry interface or exposure.
  • Ø Placement & ROI: 100 per cent placement may be a myth with student dropping out or not eligible for sitting in placements. Placements do matter but it should not be the only criteria in selecting a B-School. Do not consider B-Schools as placements agencies! B-Schools are responsible for imparting knowledge and preparing you to deliver in an adverse position.   

           In fact MBA aspirants move one step forward and take 2 steps back whether they should invest lakhs of Rupees to study MBA                 where Return on investment may not be so good. There are number of B- schools that have better corporate interface than                     many IIMs and over the years have built up a reputation of offering good return on investment. The placement data available on             their site reflect the trends. You may check it before taking admission decision to the preferred B school.

  • Ø Infrastructure: Poor infrastructure, crammed and space wanting class rooms may not offer good learning environment. The institute can claim to have state of the art campus featured with many USPs but the fact could be, it may be running courses in hired campus. This fact can be ascertained by visiting the site of the institute and reading the mandatory disclosure available there.

           Good management institute is supposed to have good, well equipped class rooms, well stocked library, auditorium, residential                 accommodation, mess, first-aid facility for the students on campus so that they can make best use of the available resources                 and get mentorship from their faculties when they feel like.

           There is no point running for the brand, but choose the one B-school where you can expand your wings not looking at your                     average scores but making it big in good learning environment.

{PS: If you have scored an average percentile and even your sectional percentile scores are also not as per the minimum prescribed qualifying scores, you have the opportunity to pursue your MBA from a good B school.}
