International rankings and ratings

The FT MIM features full-time masters programmes offered by schools that are accredited by AACSB or EQUIS. The rankings are based on two separate surveys – one completed by the participating business schools and the second by alumni who finished their Masters programmes in 2018.

SPJIMR is one of the seven Indian business schools (the other six are IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, ISB, IIM Indore and IIM Lucknow) to make it to the QS Global MBA rankings for the year 2023. This is the seventh consecutive year that SPJIMR is on this elite list. SPJIMR is part of the 151-200 rankings bracket for the fourth consecutive year.

The main ranking parameters are: the reputation notoriety of the programmes with recruiters, to engage with and be known and recognized by recruiting companies and have an active approach towards them; the salary received immediately of the first employment after graduation – placement of your graduates in the best job positions on the market; student’s satisfaction, work on improving your programmes by taking into account the feedback of your students.

SPJIMR is recognised as one of the top four management schools across 21 participating countries for social impact by the Positive Impact Ratings (PIR) Association at the UN PRME Global Forum.

It has been awarded the highest “pioneering school” rating for its innovative community-based actions, environmental and socially responsible culture and governance, and strong teaching focus on responsible leadership. This is the second successive year that SPJIMR has received this recognition.

PIR, a Swiss association, governs these ratings. It was initiated by a group of concerned business school experts and founded by the endorsers WWF, Oxfam International and the UNGC Switzerland, with the active support of the funders VIVA Idea and The Institute for Business Sustainability (IBS).
