This comparison is unfair. These 4 top institutes rank just after the top 4 or 5 IIMs. A comparative analysis along with few of the IIMs should have been done to check where each of them stands in the top 10 or top 15. These Business Schools rank above many IIMs in terms of alumni network, corporate connect, International Collaboration, placement, PPOs & offers. Compare Business School Series: IIFT vs MDI vs SPJIMR vs XLRI below mentioned.
