IIM Kolkata in FT Top 20 global biz schools
Indian Institute of Management Kolkata (IIM-Kolkata) participated in the Financial Times (FT) Global Rankings survey for Masters in Management programs for the first time in its 52-year-old history and was ranked among the toppers.
In fact, IIM Kolkata, at number 19, has found a place within the top 20 management programmes in the world, ranking higher than world-renowned institutions like the London School of Economics or the Manchester Business School. IIM Kolkata and IIM Ahmedabad are the only two institutions from India to feature in this top 20 list.
According to Ashok Banerjee (Dean, New Initiatives and External Relations),IIM Kolkata’s intellectual capital, placement history and the success of its alumni base had made this international recognition possible. ‘Our accreditation by CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education, paved the way for our participation in the FT rankings survey. With areas of entrepreneurship and sustainability taking shape, we are looking forward to performing even better in the coming years,’ he said.
