 Apart from being among the top five globally in terms of   percentage salary increase and placement three months after     graduation, ISB continues to make progress in in alumni   recommendation, weighted salary, percentage of aims achieved   and placement success.

 "Our research ranking clearly puts us at the top of the Indian b-   schools in terms of our investment in faculty and research and   corresponding research output. Because research rankings depend   on total versus per capita research productivity, we will improve as   we attract more resident faculty. We will continue to focus on   providing world class education while steadfastly investing in our   faculty, research centres and institutes.ISB will continue to   proactively partner with government and industry to drive   performance and to contribute to society at large," said Rajendra   Srivastava, Dean, ISB, adding that the institute has over 8600   alumni across 42 countries.

  IIM Ahmedabad has been ranked 31st which has fallen from 29 of   last year rankings. IIM Bangalore rank jumped from 49 to 35 this   year. Two years back IIM B was at 62. According to Sourav Mukherji, Dean of Academic Programmes at IIM Bangalore, the premier B-school said that efforts in improving student learning experience led to a positive impact on ranking.

Commenting on the institute's performance, Errol D'Souza, director-in-charge, IIM Ahmedabad said, "The market for management education has become crowded and extremely competitive and we are pleased to be continually ranked amongst the top 1 per cent of schools. We have moved down a notch in the ranking this year and though this is marginal it will energize us to do better."

Given that FT surveys alumni three years after graduation, the programmes need to be four years old. For schools to enter the ranking calculations, FT requires that a minimum of 20 per cent of alumni reply to the survey, with at least 20 fully completed responses.

The ranking assigns weights to criteria such as current salary of alumni, average salary increase before the programme and three years after, career progress, female and international faculty, and female and international students, among others. Source: FT
