The results of almost all top B schools are now out. The schools to reckon with have declared their lists of “The Chosen One”.  In my last article Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain – SSC CGL I had discussed an alternate option and had also mentioned that not more than 200 B Schools are worth joining. In the last few days and several times last year students who did not make it to the top institutes have asked me to compare what I call “The League of Not So Ordinary B Schools Many students who have to do an MBA this year have also asked me to recommend B schools they can apply to. .” With limited information available, an educated guess is all I could afford.

In my estimate, the worth of a B school can be gauged by its placement record since it is the outcome of good processes. I do not have the competence to evaluate the faculty or all the processes that go into making a good B school but I can definitely measure its quantifiable output. The purpose of any B school is to provide industry with trained manpower and hence any institute which has the confidence of the industry will have good placements.

The task before us hence was to identify, out of the 4000+ B schools, the institutes that are not very well known but provide good placements Many B schools partner CL and this year we at CL have requested our partner institutes to submit their detailed placements data. Over the next few weeks, we’ll share some of the insights that we have gained through this exercise. The goal is to help you make an educated career choice.

This series is being anchored by Ms. Niharika Mittal, an alumnus of IIM Lucknow. She has the unenviable task of sifting through the data provided by the B schools verify it and if found correct to present it to you for consideration. The first article of this series will be published shortly.

All the best
