The rankings show the country's premier b-school doing worse than before in various fields, including salary, placements, women faculty and board members, and international faculty and students
The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has slipped 15 places to 26th slot in this year's edition of the annual Financial Times' Global MBA rankings.
The rankings show the country's premier b-school doing worse than before in various fields, including salary, placements, women faculty and board members, and international faculty and students. It could only manage a percentage increase in terms of admitting female students.
In what may hark back to the issue of poor research in the IIMs and the IITs in general, the institute ranks 94th among 100 other b-schools when it comes to research by full-time faculty, and has slipped 12 places in terms of the number of doctoral graduates.
Meanwhile, the institute has one of the highest percentages of faculty with PhDs (98%), and has also done better to bolster the international mobility of its students, the rankings show.
But what may grab the most attention of the rankings insofar as IIM-A is concerned, the salary figures have slipped — annual salaries now stand at US$ 171,188, down by US$ 3,888.
Although students who pass out from the institute receive on average a 110 per cent increase in salaries when compared to before they took up courses there, even this is lower by as much 30 per cent when compared to previous years.
