It said the other management schools in the top 50 ranking list released yesterday include INSEAD, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Harvard Business School, MIT: Sloan, University of California at Berkeley: Haas,.

Stating that the ranking is based on surveys of the business schools and their alumni, IIMB said programmes are assessed according to the career progression of alumni, the school’s idea generation and the diversity of students and faculty.
