Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s S P Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) became the only privately run Indian B-School in the top 50 ranks in the Financial Times Masters in Management Rankings 2020.

SPJIMR, featured at rank 36, tied with IIM Bangalore, for its Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), the two-year, full-time, residential MBA-equivalent, the institute’s oldest programme. The FT’s 2020 MiM Ranking features full-time masters programmes offered by schools that are accredited by AACSB or EQUIS.

‘Followed our own path’

Among the only five Indian b-Schools to feature this year, SPJIMR is the only private Indian school to feature in the list of the top programmes in the world. The other four Indian institutes include IIM Ahmedabad, Calcutta, Bangalore, and Udaipur.

Dr Ranjan Banerjee, Dean, SPJIMR, said, “We have followed our own path. Curriculum relevance, a high degree of industry integration, and a strong focus on value education and experiential learning have set us apart. The FT ranking places a lot of emphasis on alumni performance in the industry, and is thus validation of our approach. We will continue to learn, innovate, and get better.”

Dr Renuka Kamath, Associate Dean – Academic Services and External Relations, added “It was only a matter of time before this happened. It has helped to continue building on what we believe in: our philosophies of influencing practice and value-based leadership”
