“There has seen a 187 per cent rise in the salary its own alumni,” he said—a parameter on which the school is ranked 3rd worldwide.

“At 34 per cent, ISB has the largest intake of women students amongst Indian business schools. The other key parameters that helped in achieving high ranking included weighted salary, percentage of aims achieved, career services success, value for money, alumni recommendation, etc,” he said.

“ISB was established with a vision to be a globally top ranked, research driven, management institution. After 12 years of the School’s consistent top performance in the FT Global MBA Rankings 2019 we can be proud of our global positioning as an institute of eminence from India.

This goes a long way in helping strengthen the Study in India initiative and help promote India as a destination for high quality management education.” Srivastava said.
