Hyderabad: Indian School of Business ranks first in India and 16th worldwide as claimed by an annual survey conducted by Poets and Quants. The latter is a private body that gives an average of cumulative ranking by The Financial Times, The Economist, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Forbes.
The Business School has moved up from 49th position last year to 16th this year, and it is one of the few business schools topping in Asia. Poets and Quants also praised the institutions rise in rankings. “Surprisingly, ISB shot up 29 places after it picked up rankings for the first time from both Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes. They also improved on the FT list,” added the private body.
Dean of Indian School of Business, Professor Rajendra Srivastava, said that 2019 has been great for ISB in terms of global recognition and rankings. “This ranking by Poets and Quants is our latest triumph. The school has grown from strength to strength in recent years. The Poets and Quants rankings reflect balanced excellence across student placements, their salary increases, alumni performance, faculty growth, and research quality and impact. We look forward to 2020 with optimism and greater vigour,” he added.
INSEAD Business Schools located around the world topped the Poets and Quants charts. INSEAD is situated in four destinations — France, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and San Francisco. The others in the top five are London Business School (LBS), IESE, HEC Paris and IMD.
