PaGaLGuY B-school Rankings 2013
India's Most Preferred B-schools

Traditionally, B-schools rankings have been trying to tell us which MBA programs we should be looking at in the coming admissions season. However, none of them have succeeded in capturing the order of business schools that Indians actually want to study at, despite what these rankings advise.

We thus decided to place the power of deciding India's top ranked MBA schools in the hands of the people in an unbiased manner using PaGaLGuY's CommunityRank methodology to produce these rankings.

This year, we feature 100 b-schools in the rankings.

Start browsing the rankings by reading the highlights and analysis , or jump straight to the full list of the rankings below.

For those interested in understanding how we arrived at the rankings, read our methodology . Note, that this is not a ranking of India's Best B-schools, but of India's Most Preferred B-schools. Please interpret this ranking as indicative of what your peers think about India's B-schools.
