In less than ten years from its founding, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Udaipur has joined the prestigious Financial Times (FT) Master in Management (MIM) Ranking 2019, recognised globally as one of the key indicators of excellence for a B-school. Until 2018, only three IIMs were part of the FT MIM ranking – IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, and Calcutta. In 2019, IIM Udaipur joins this elite group in 76th position.
With the exception of schools that were created by merging existing institutions of long-standing, IIM Udaipur is the youngest management school in the world in both the FT top MIM 100 ranking and the QS MIM ranking.
Last year IIM-U became the youngest B-school in India to receive the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation and joined the elite group of 5 percent of the world’s B-schools. The FT ranking assesses a variety of criteria, including alumni salary and career progress; value for money; school diversity (female faculty, students and board members); international experience and research; and student internships. After gaining AACSB accreditation in November 2018, IIM Udaipur became eligible to be considered for Financial Times MIM ranking 2019 which includes top B-schools from Europe, Asia and North America.
