After being listed as one of the top global MBA schools, IIM-U Chairman Pankaj Patel was quoted by news agency IANS as saying, “Being in the top 129 programmes is an important milestone for a young institute like IIM-U and confirms that it’s on its way to attaining the long-term objective of becoming a globally recognised management institute.”

The various factors in which the QS MIM rankings are determined are employability, alumni outcomes, value for money, thought leadership, class and faculty diversity. The other three IIMs that are already a part of the QS MIM rankings for this year are IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore and IIM Calcutta.
