Hi Narenn,

thank you for sharing this. I can see clear distinctions between INSEAD and other close contenders. However, I have seen a lot of good reviews of my IIM A applicants and I am not sure if I would place it below NUS.

Is there a data that can tell us more about how Indian MBA Grads in Singapore are doing ? How much are they earning ? If they are happy/Excited/Sad?

Between IIM A and NUS, what would be more appealing to an Indian recruiter?

Does NUS still have a very active Alumni chapter in India?

Do you know how are CEIBS Grads doing outside China?Can I look at any authentic source ? ( Not the school websites)

Thank you for managing the community, and bringing value !

Jatin

Hi Jatin,

FT rankings place substantial weight - 59% - on alumni feedback. There are many reasons why NUS is placed above IIM-A. May be NUS alumni are getting higher salary or the NUS MBA degree opening more diverse job opportunities or faster career progress to them in comparison with IIM-A alumni. IIM-A students may be enjoying their educational experience much but that's just one factor and school's rank is depend on various other factors which greater emphasis on post MBA growth.

FYI everyone, Here are details of weights assigned for different ranking criteria in FT's rankings.
Quote:

The figure in brackets is the percentage of the class for which the school was able to provide employment data and is used to calculate the school’s final score in this category.*

Schools with a 50:50 (male/female) composition receive the highest possible score in the three gender-related criteria.

Thank you. This is very detailed.

Considering the differences I have observed between the careers and growth opportunities for my applicants in the past 5 to 6 years at both these places, I would place IIM A definitely over NUS for Indian applicants. However, I am sure FT does a more comprehensive research.

Thanks, Jatin
