AIMS: a Top B-School According to Times B-School Survey

An MBA is one of the most aspired for Post Graduate qualifications in India. While 3000+ schools exist in the country to cater to this demand, only a handful impart quality education and churn out leaders. The AIMS School of Business has proven itself to be one of the top 25 B-schools in India. This comes from a recent, research based survey carried out by Times B-School that lists the top 200 business schools in India. The survey is based on several important education and placement parameters.

Bengaluru, India, April 22, 2015 –(PR.com)– AIMS School of Business (AIMS Institutes) has proven itself as one of the top 25 B-schools in India. This result comes from a recent, research based survey carried out by Times B-School that lists the top 200 business schools in India.

AIMS Institutes offer programs in business management, commerce, hospitality & tourism, information technology, arts & humanities in Bangalore at graduate and post-graduate levels. AIMS’ MBA program is one of their most successful and has landed the college 22nd place in a list of 200 B-schools. AIMS also ranks as the 4th top choice of B-school in the south region of India, shadowed only by IIM-Bangalore and Loyola.

Times B-School partnered with i3 Research Consultants to arrive at a list of top 200 schools, using a scientifically developed analysis method. The process included 3 main segments:

Desk Research: This first stage was mainly to generate a comprehensive list of B-schools all over India. The names were derived using previous surveys, magazines, articles and the Internet. Only B-schools that received 30 or more responses were included in the list.

Factual Data Collection: The second stage attempted to fill in the following parameters for each university: Selection process, Accreditation’s and Affiliations, Curriculum, Faculty and Pedagogy, Global Exposure, Industry interaction/internships, Networking and Alumni, Infrastructure and Placement

Perceptual Survey and Analysis: A questionnaire survey was created and sent to a sample of 1550 across 16 cities in the North, South, East and West of India. Those who took the survey included Recruiters, Alumni, Faculties, Current students and Parents of aspiring students. These respondents rated a list of parameters on a scale of 1 to 10.

To analyze the data collected from the survey, an overall score for each B-school was created by weighting the scores for each parameter. To collate the factual data, a similar weighting was calculated for each parameter to reach an overall score. Finally, an average of both the Perception Score and the Factual Score equaled the final B-school score.
