Kolkata: The premier Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta has been ranked as the best B-school from Asia in the FT Masters in Management Global Rankings.
It has been recognised at rank 13 of the 2014 Financial Times Master in Management (MiM) ranking leaping by 6 places from 2013, for its flagship post graduate program.
According to the list it is the highest ranked non-European B-school with a prized positioning in the top cluster.
With only six non-European schools in the list of top 70, the other Indian school in the ranking is IIM Ahmedabad on rank 16. IIM Calcutta has also been recognised as the best management institute globally for study in economics with the first rank.
"FT Rankings is considered the gold standard in B-School ranking and we are indeed happy and proud to make such progress in a single year. This is a significant milestone in our globalisation journey along with our recent achievements including the AMBA, AACSB accreditations and the CEMS membership," said Professor Ashok Banerjee, dean of IIM's New Initiatives and External Relations.
He said the rankings will help them network more closely with the top European B-schools.
