NIRF 2019 Rankings - our analysis and insights

08 April, 2019

The Ministry of Human Resource Development’s National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) 2019 edition was announced by the President of India, Shri. Ram Nath Kovind. In the Management category, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM Bangalore) topped the list, while IIM Ahmedabad secured the second position.

 

The NIRF 2019 list contains 75 b-schools (instead of 50 in the 2018 edition). The same 13 Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) continue to be among the best as those the 2018 edition despite this increase. This year, 6 IIMs made it to the top-10. IIM Ranchi is the biggest gainer, jumping 12 spots to #28 this year, whereas Lal Bahadur Shastri Institute of Management (LBSIM) lost 27 spots to #74. B-Schools from 22 states featured in this year's ranking; the top four states are: Tamil Nadu with 10, Delhi with 9, Uttar Pradesh with 9 and Maharashtra with 8 B-Schools. 

 

Same as last year, the five parameters to evaluate colleges were - Teaching, Learning & Resources (TLR), Research and Professional Practice (RPC), Graduation Outcomes (GO), Outreach and Inclusivity (OI), and Perception (PR). TLR, RP received 30% weightage, while OI, PR received 10% weightage. Remaining 20% weightage was allocated to GO.

 

The list below showcases the NIRF 2019 rank, and a modified rank based on GO+PR. Why did we do this modification in the ranking? Because we believe that for the MBA students, the graduation outcomes (placements, median salaries) and recruiter & peer perceptions matter the most in selecting the B-Schools. Thus, the GO+PR ranking in the last column reflects the weighted GO & PR scores -
