just got the below mail

ISB does it yet again

We are glad to inform you that The Indian School of Business (ISB) has been ranked No: 12 in the global B-school rankings released by the Financial Times, London. The only Indian business school to be counted among the world’s top 20. This is the third year in a row, that ISB has achieved a high rank amongst leading international business schools.
Being ranked ‘Twelve’ among global B-schools is a validation of the ISB’s effort to be a research-driven, independent management institution that grooms future leaders for India and the world.
We wish you a great year ahead.

ISB is doing really well - there is no doubt about that. The next challenge will be to become 'more international' student body wise and move away from the Engr focus that most of its student body seems to possess.

About the only school I considered in India.

With India's status as an ever-increasing economic power, ISB has a real chance to increase its reputation by attracting a diverse pool of international applicants, as well as top-class international faculty.

The faculty wont be a challenge - plenty of profs are interested in coming to India to teach given the general excitement around the economy. The student body is still a different story ... but it can only improve.

Why IIMs nowhere in the list

Check out the below article, for those who are wondering why prestigious IIMs not in the FT ranking list:
http://www.iimaalumni.org/n/front/campu ... ?art_ID=84

FT RANKINGS & IIMA: A message to alumni from IIMA director Samir Barua.

The latest rankings of MBA programmes by Financial Times (FT) have caused some concern among a few of us. This is a clarification on the matter, based on the information provided by the team of FT which carried out the rankings:

The criteria used by FT for inclusion of a programme in the list of programmes for the ranking study included the following key features:

I The programme had to be a ‘post-experience’ MBA programme. That is, work experience ought to be a mandatory requirement for admission to the programme.

II The programme ought to have graduated at least three batches. That is, new programmes, that were less than three years old, did not qualify for the ranking study.

IIMA’s flagship programme, the PGP, did not qualify for inclusion in the list since it is not a post-experience programme (it does admit candidates without work experience). IIMA’s one year executive education programme, the PGPX, did not qualify since only the second batch is completing the programme. If the same criteria were to continue for inclusion in the list for ranking MBA programmes, the PGPX would qualify only in 2010. Till then, no programme of IIMA would qualify for ranking of MBA programmes by FT.

As regards, the PGP, the Institute has been informed by FT that the programme qualifies for inclusion in the list of programmes for ranking as Masters Programme in Management. If the institute decides to participate in this (Masters Programme in Management) ranking by FT, then the PGP will be included under this category.

Thats interesting and good points made.
Many of us might have thought of no ranks of IIM's in their list.

ISB could be in the top 10 if they have a more diverse student body.

ISB weighed avg salary is 140k $ ( Is this USD) ?

If so, something is seriously amiss here.

That's the average weighted salary. They convert the INR avg salaries to USD salaries using PPP index. This gives a great edge to ISB over other B-schools in FT ranking. Few might argue that this ranking method is little biased :P

Some info regarding FT ranking calculations..

This guy has done a good analysis of the underlying methods employed in calculating the B school rankings. This may be a little against the ISB aspirants.
