A business school is a university-level institution that confers degrees in Business Administration. It teaches topics such as accounting, administration, economics, finance, information systems, marketing, organizational behavior, public relations, strategy, human resource management, and quantitative methods.

On hearing the name b-school it simply gives me fears and gives me loads of tension and puts me in dual thoughts rather multiple thoughts which school is the best. All management aspirants aspire to study in one of the top B-schools of the country. With this comes into mind if we have to rank these b schools which would have been the top? After few research just came about with the following conclusions with the parameters like the infrastructure, Intellectual Percentile, Admission & Placements, Infrastructure, Scale of operation, Industry Interface, International Linkages.

 MBA to me means:

Unless your parents have pots of gold buried in their backyard, you are going to be working yourself thin to pay off the enormous loans you acquire to complete the program.

Strict admission criteria

B-school feeding students – telling them what to do and what not

Losing focus from real issue and getting lost in the mumbo jumbo

MBA is more of networking

About one in every 4,000 alumni of the top 10 MBA programs were among the highest-paid executives

MBA is all in the name no matter what curricula students have to go through

MBA grads fail to perform is because they often don't have enough practical experience.

These MBA guys leave college with half filled ideas in their brains with no full-fledged stand neither in the practical neither world nor theoretical.  

Business education is big business for schools and their professors.

There are considerable questions about the relevance of their educational product and doubts about their effects on both the careers and management skills of their graduates.





Why CEOs Fail," had MBAs

An MBA degree doesn't help you succeed

No real knowledge is being imparted

Makes you older than your peers

Too many managers

Does your teacher know what he/she's teaching?

Learn the jargon, know the game

So why the rush for an MBA?


No matter whatever people believe or what they say taking into consideration all the positive aspects of being into b-school viewing your career in mind you would like or dislike it you would opt for an MBA and as far as the rankings are concerend you would also take them seriously if you take your MBA seriously with a lead and plans  Business school rankings are important. Top schools turn out highly sought-after graduates. School reputation is important. The more ties a business school has with different industries and employers, the better. Top business schools also tend to attract the greatest volume of recruiters and offer the best opportunities for new graduates.
