MBAs for Investment Banking/PE/Venture Cap in India [#permalink]

Hi,

I saw a discussion on an Indian MBA forum about MBA schools in India that place well into Investment Banking (and related industries) aside from the obvious ones and it didn't really garner much attention there, so I'm wondering if people over here can answer this, because I'm curious about this as well. The author claimed that "obvious" schools for banking placement are: IIMA, IIMB, IIMC, and ISB, so I wanted to first off confirm if those are truly the gold standard for Banking placement (subtract or add schools in this Tier 1 category) and what else can give you a shot at banking? My guess is that it would go something like (in order from best to worst in each tier):

Tier 1:
IIM-A, IIM-C, IIM-B

Tier 2:
ISB, XLRI, FMS

However, I am curious about where else one can go outside of those schools, if all those schools even place, what the best and worst schools of those that place are, etc. so can someone help me sort this out?

Finally, and this is a much simpler question, is banking in India solely in Bombay, or would Delhi and maybe Bangalore and all also have banking? I know 95% of it is probably in Mumbai and Mumbai is the financial capital of India, but are there other cities with a presence in banking?

What do you mean by banking ?

(1) Traditional investment banking : M&A, PE
(2) Global Markets : Sales & Trading
(3) Support Roles
(4) Research Roles & Quantitative Groups

Depending on which one of those you are after, the answer to the questions will be different

Non-quantitative, non-back/middle office investment banking. So I guess traditional M&A, PE, Restructuring, and Capital Markets (even though I guess some people argue cap markets is middle office). Also, include loan syndications/high level corporate banking on the list, and exclude any asset management/private banking nonsense.

Most of the roles you are after are in Mumbai but there are jobs in places like Delhi as well.

As far as schools go, it is all about alumni network. Those who have good alumni networks in the industries you are talking about will always get the companies coming back to hire. I know people working in banking in India from the IIMs, ISB, FMS & XLRI. But really, it is no surprise that the "first pick" of jobs goes to IIM & ISB as they are the more well known and "tier-1" Indian schools
