PGP in India: IIMA/ISB/IIMB


I would like to do a PGP or MBA program in India in 2015. I am only considering the business schools ranked in the Financial Times, so ISB, IIMA and IIMB.

Of these which will provide the best value in the long term? Obviously IIMA is the traditional choice, but I feel like the other two are on the rise, in terms of reputation.

About me: I am an Indian female who has been working abroad in technology operations for the past three years: one year in London and most recently two years in Singapore. (I have 4.5 years of total work experience.) I would like to transition back in India, into a management level role.

Do you have a sector preference? Of course you're probably aware that IIMA is the most competitive of them, but grads tend to have higher salaries too. If you can get in there it's probably a good decision, in any case.

However, what I find interesting about ISB is the diversity of post-MBA career paths. All three schools place well in IT, that's a given, given the country's economy, but ISB also is strong in consulting and financial services as well.

the question is not which one you like the question whether any of them offer you a place or not because they are very difficult to take admission in these schools becasue of more population in india you know that.

apply to all of three if any ot they shortlist you and if you pass admission criteria than go for that.

I think that any of these three would probably be a good choice: in past years, IIMA has placed 15-25 percent of PGPX grads into consulting roles, which is on par with ISB. I urge you to connect with each school and ask them these kinds of questions; you can also connect with alumni to get a sense of their career arcs, and to see if they have any tips for you.

1. IIM A
2. ISB

And then the others. IIM B only recently got into the FT, I would give it a few years to see where it goes.

Hi,

With your kind of experience, ISB can offer you a better career deal. Designed especially for the professionals with over 2.5 years experience, the one-year intensive course boosts your profile stream. That means, it supplements your existing experience. You also enjoy the advantage in the view of your technology sector background. Consulting and IT are the top two industries absorbing the ISB graduates. The campus placement offers profiles suited to a professional with at least 2.5 years work experience.

Having said that, IIM needs no introduction. The 2-years extensive course is designed for the candidates with 0-2.5 years work experience. The career opportunities are tailored accordingly.

Therefore, while you may try for all 3, ISB should be your prime target.
