Which one school is good to go for?

Hello there,

I just found that two of our Indian schools have been ranked worldwide on the same position in PoetsandQuants apart from IIM-A.

S P Jain School of Global Management
Indian School of Business

What do you think which one is best to go for to have a bright future?

Please let me know your reviews.

Thanks a lot!

I think this depends on where you want to work. ISB is great for India, since it is there. SJ Jain Global School is good for Dubai and Singapore, since it is there. ISB has a much higher GMAT and is generally a much stronger school, other than its alumni are concentrated in India.

I was just looking at SP Jain's most recent career report, and salary-wise, it's a surprisingly good value, and has good results, for those who want to work in Dubai.

However, if you did want to work in Singapore, there are probably better options than SP Jain (NUS, Nanyang, Insead.)

If you wanted to stay in India, I'd say that today's reality is more mixed. Even last year, ISB would have been a no-brainer. But this year's ISB salary stats and its continued drop in the FT rankings are starting to make it less attractive. IIM-A would be the best option, obviously, but if it's a choice between ISB and SP Jain, it could go either way depending on your chosen industry/focus/etc.

Thanks Duncan! I think you had a great point to discuss. I want to go globally rather than being in India. What you say?

Does ISB provide any global opportunity?

Regarding SPJain, I am quite influenced but just wondering if I can have opportunities in US or UK after getting my MBA done from SP Jain?

Thanks again!

Thank you so much!

Here, I am not so clear with the ISB's ranking, what's your point?

For SP Jain, and their recent ranking in Forbes it's quite attracting me but just looking for wider opportunity.

For IIM-A, I haven't appear for CAT-13 so I don't know whether they would accept GMAT or not.

My point was that since the FT is a good gauge of a school's global reach, and that ISB is the only other Indian school ranked there besides IIM-A, it's worth considering for that reason. But it's been dropping in the rankings, so the reasoning is less certain that it has been in recent years.

Ohk. So that's the fact.

But if that's the case, then how come it has been depicted by P&Q in the world's ranking list among most of the b-schools?

Sorry, but quite unclear with this. Thanks!

I think you can read the methodology in the P&Q blog. ISB is a strong school. It has fallen from a very high position, 13th worldwide, to one which is still quite high: 34th. It's a like a car slowing down: it has not stopped (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/indian-school-of-business/global-mba-ranking-2013#global-mba-ranking-2013). But the ISB and IIM-A are both handicapped in the FT rankings, which stress the international and gender diversity of the school's students, faculties and board members. Other schools in Asia are overtaking them slowly and, for the moment, ISB students are still getting better salary than graduates of the much older and stronger MBAs in Singapore's universities.

I found it is a combination of several other rankings like Bloomsberg, Businessweek, FT and Forbes. Forbes has ranked S P Jain globally #19, and no other indian originating institute. I am quite impressed with their tri-city model presence and curriculum. But not sure, doe it worth spending time and money in it?

I think if you have ambitions outside India (especially in the other cities where SP Jain has campuses,) it's a reasonable alternative to ISB.

However, if you were looking for jobs in Dubai or Singapore, I think it's probably worth it to consider programs that are based exclusively in those cities. Singapore has some great options (NUS, Nanyang, etc.); and in Dubai there's the University of Dubai, and Hult even.

I believe, S P Jain does provide placements in other countries also. But NUS is also great.

SP Jain's alumni are overwhelmingly in India, UAE, and Singapore. NUS has a much more international network - arguably a much stronger presence in Singapore, with alumni all over southeast Asia and as far as the US. I stand by my original point: if you're looking for jobs in places beyond India, it would be better to go with a school in the particular places you're looking at. NUS/Nanyang/Insead for Singapore; the University of Dubai and others in UAE.

And what if you are looking for global opportunities? I am not sure then...

There are few business schools with global mobility; which are able to place students evenly over the world into new countries. And, generally, few students are really global, because of language, family and opportunities they tend to be focussed on just a few countries. I think it's good idea to plan towards what you want, and then pick from the available options that make that most possible. SJ Jain is more international than ISB but neither of these have a high profile outside the Asia-Pacific region.

Both the B-schools are having quite better placement records. Just the thing is S P Jain is more international, while ISB is typically Indian but it has alumni recruited in other countries.

Thanks Nitenya & Duncan!

Do you know any alumni from these institutes? How are they placed? I mean which company and how much the package they have got?

I am not sure but looking for S P Jain over ISB. God knows what I will do.

Thanks for your help!
Yash :)
