Bengaluru: IIM Bangalore’s one-year full-time MBA programme, the Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP), has moved up six places from last year to claim the 27th spot in the Financial Times (FT) Global MBA Rankings 2020. IIMB has bagged the top spot among Indian B-schools in the rankings.
“It is a matter of great satisfaction that all the effort put in by the EPGP office and the faculty in delivering a great programme, the work of the Placements team in helping improve the placements, and the alumni in keeping the flag flying high is paying off in terms of international recognition,” said IIMB Director Prof. G. Raghuram.
Noteworthy is the fact that IIMB has achieved 100% in the “employed at three months category”, which reaffirms the fact that EPGP graduates are well accepted in the marketplace. IIMB’s one-year MBA has been steadily moving up the global rankings over the last four years, from the 49th position in 2017 to the 27th rank in 2020.
