    Synopsis

    For any management studies aspirant, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) are an obvious choice. But, there are some institutes, other than IIMs, that have the same placement record and a comparable median salary as that of any IIMs. Careers360 in this analysis brings you those management institutes that are not IIMs but rank among the top B-schools in India.

    There is no doubt that the IIMs are a brand name that everyone who dreams of a degree in management wants to boast on their resume. But not every aspirant can secure a seat at the IIM of their choice. Let us assure you there are options other than IIMs that offer a similar experience as any of the top IIMs. They have similar placement records, but the salary packages that are offered to students vary with respect to the college rank.

    There were only 13 IIMs before 2015 in India, after which seven new IIMs were established across India, making the total to 20 IIMs. All the IIMs provide a two year full-time MBA (Master of Business Administration) and other diploma programmes in management.

    Also, there are some Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) that offer a degree and diplomas in management. Most management candidates aspire to secure a seat at these top B-schools that are run by the Ministry of Education of the government of India.

    Careers360 in this analysis has left out the IIMs and IITs and has analysed the salary and placement data of management institutes that rank among the top 30 according to the NIRF.

    For the benefit of our readers, and better comparison, we have listed the top IIMs and seven new IIMs in our analysis.

    Below mentioned institutes are the top 10 management institutes other than IIMs and IITs across India as per the National Institutes Ranking Framework(NIRF) 2022. All these institutes are among the top 30 management institutes.
