The Financial Times Global MBA Rankings 2014, announced on Monday (January 27), ranks Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB's) Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management at 68th place.
This is the first time that IIMB's EPGP is participating in the FT Global MBA Rankings. EPGP is the only one-year full-time residential management education programme in India, after ISB's PGP and IIMA's PGPX, to be recognised under the 'Global MBA' umbrella and ranked on FT.
As per FT, 11 criteria calculated from school data account for 31 per cent of the ranking.
These measure the diversity of teaching staff, board members and MBA students, according to gender and nationality, and the international reach of the programme. For gender criteria, schools with a 50:50 (male/female) composition receive the highest score. To ensure the integrity of school data, KPMG audits a number of schools every year.
