  Pegasus's B-School Ranking  
To simplify your B-school selection we have categorized India's top B- schools into eight clusters. The list of B-school in India can go on forever, however, we have tried to limit our classification to the better and more known B-schools.

Note, as you proceed from the best to the also-rans, the level of differentiation between both the schools and the clusters significantly diminishes. When reviewing B-schools within a cluster, the preference generally diminishes as you read further from top to bottom. For example, in Cluster 1, we feel that IIM-A is the best B-school in India at present, followed by Bangalore, Kolkata and so on. In certain clusters, the differentiation on the quality of the institute is specialization-driven, and the top to bottom reading is not necessarily representative.

Before taking final admission into any of these B-schools, please ensure that you speak to some students of the current batch and a few of their alumni and visit the websites of the institutes for detailed information. Apart from these premier institutes, there are several other colleges that offer an MBA degree - if you want more details, please write to us at
  Pegasus ranking methodology  
  The parameters on which B-schools are judged and ranked, keeping in mind what each offers the student and how these facilitate education are:  
  • Placement records of the last three years
  • Infrastructure: school and learning environment
  • Faculty
  • Geographical location: proximity of B-schools to business hubs
  • Entrance exams applicable
  • Interaction with alumni
  • Interaction with Career Launcher students now studying at these B-schools
Career Launcher also visits these campuses as a recruiter, and the input from our HR team helps us evaluate these institutes better.
