IIMB’s continued success in the FT MBA ranking is a result of our unwavering focus on providing world-class education and a supportive community to our students. We look forward to continuing this tradition of excellence in the years to come,” said Professor Rishikesha T Krishnan, Director, IIM Bangalore. 

In addition to its ascent in the overall ranking, IIMB also scored extremely well in salary percentage increase and faculty with doctorates. Compared to 2022, the school saw an uptick in terms of career progression rank, female faculty and female student ratios.

The core metrics considered for the rankings include value for money, career progress, aims achieved, career services, employability, female students, the involvement of women on the school board, female faculty, international mobility, faculty with doctorates, and newly added parameters – ESG and carbon footprint.
