IIM-A and IIM-C post-graduate programmes ranked 18th and 19th worldwide

The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) and IIM-Calcutta's post-graduate programmes have been ranked among the world's top 20 management programmes in the 2013 FT Masters in Management (MiM) survey.

While IIM-A comes in at the 18th position, IIM-C is right after, in the 19th. Unlike its Ahmedabad counterpart, the Kolkata institute is a new entrant on the list. It also marks the very first time IIM-C participated in the survey.

The 2013 FT Masters in Management (MiM) ranking features the top 70 programmes for students with little or no previous work experience. Globally, the University of St Gallen, Switzerland is at top for the third year running, followed by ESCP Europe and WHU Beisheim in Germany.

IIM-Ahmedabad and IIM-Calcutta are the only two institutes from India to figure in this ranking. Both have been ranked higher than such world-renowned institutions as the London School of Economics, Aalto University, Manchester Business School, among others.

"Our engagement with CEMS, the global alliance in management education, paved the way for our participation in the FT rankings survey, and gave an impetus to our journey for internationalisation. With our accreditation with AACSB expected shortly, and various other initiatives in the areas of internationalisation, entrepreneurship and sustainability taking shape, we are looking forward to performing even better in the coming years," stated an IIM-Calcutta press release.

In the FT Global MBA rankings 2013 earlier this year, IIM-Ahmedabad emerged at No 26, while ISB-Hyderabad stood at 34, both having slipped several notches since the last year.
