Now thats an achievement. And honestly, I am quite disturbed at reactions of ISBians who feel ‘saddened’ by IIMA being there at 11. It shows lack of maturity and vision. IIMA is a great school and has possibly single-handedly done a lot for this country. So lets not take it away from them. The ISB is NOT the IIM! It will never be and thats thebest we should all be proud of!
I am completely on Cloud Nine with ISB’s performance – Top 20 MBA School globally for 4 years in a row, when the school is celebrating its 10th year, is remarkable. Proud to be part of the family!
Warikoo, totally agree with you. I don’t understand why one has to always compare the ISB with IIMA. Each has something outstanding to offer. It’s like comparing HBS, Wharton, Stanford as b-schools and trying to come up with which one is the best. It really does not matter. Each of these (incl IIMA and ISB) provide superb opportunities to further one’s professional goals. Again, one is comparing an institution which is celebrating 50 yrs with one that is celebrating 10 years. If one does HAVE to rank b schools, I would rather prefer a tier system saying that such and such b schools are tier 1, etc.
All in all, I’m immensely proud of what the ISB has achieved in only 10 years. Top 20 globally for 4/10 years is something which no other b school globally has achieved. :)
am glad you agree. that makes it 2 of us! :)
Ankur- Trust me, even the senior management was saddened. I think its not about being immature but its being involved. Think of a situation 5 years for now where sustaining the ranking would be tougher.The problem probably is that – “Someone very similar to us just played our game a little better than us”. Most of us are as happy about retaining the competitive advantage but I am sure that you understand something(maybe brand value) is getting affected!
No comment Kanika. But I will return your call though! :)
WHYNOT THE GLOBAL MBA SCHOOL 4TH YEAR BE A BIHAR SCHOOL MBA ISB
Having good ranking is always a good thing for any school. I know that one of my top International Business school choices was partly based on rankings. Thunderbird is highly ranked for many of their MBA programs. I’m looking at their executive education courses and definitely took rankings into consideration. I can see the point about wanting better rankings, but being in the top 20 is better than not being in it :)
I am applying for ISB 2013. Work for Microsoft – 2 years GMAT 730 with 6.0 on AWA , 9.3 CGPA in my btech at a NIT
