Before joining an MBA college and taking an education loan, you must check the expected ROI of the college. Here's a well-curated list of MBA colleges with the best ROI in India for your reference!

Best ROI MBA Colleges in India 2020

Master of Business Administration (MBA) is not only one of the most popular courses in India but it also ranks high among the most expensive courses in the country. Top management colleges in India charge a fortune for their flagship business programs, whether it is a PGP or Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). However, why is it that the high program fee for MBA has no effect on the popularity of the course? It is because MBA also happens to be one of the best-paying degrees in India. 

The exact course fee for a PGDM/MBA course from a reputed college in the country varies on the MBA specialization and other details associated with the course. However, on average, the total fees for a PGDM/MBA course range from Rs. 10 - 25 lakhs. It is quite obvious that any student who would be willing to invest such a large amount in their education would expect good returns from the course and MBA is a course that delivers on that promise. If you have completed your management education from a good college such as IIM, you are sure to grab an above-average salary package in the Indian context. Here, an important thing to note is the ROI or Return Over Investment of your course.

What is ROI (Return on Investment)?

If you have researched the best B-schools in India, chances are you have come across the term Return on Investment (ROI). ROI basically means how much you are earning after completing a course vs the amount you spend in completing the course. Note that:

  • A college with low course fees but high salary packages will have a high ROI.

  • A college with high course fees but the same salary package as the previous college will have a lower ROI than the previous college.

As an MBA is an expensive course, many students are on the lookout for MBA scholarships in India and apply for education loans in India to pay for their courses. For such a student, it is especially important to select an MBA college with a good ROI to ensure that he/ she can pay his student loans on time and get the best salary from their degree.

In this article, we have provided the b-schools with the best ROI in India. Candidates can check the list below to find out the approx. the program fee, average salary package, highest salary package, and entrance exams of MBA colleges in India that have the best ROIs.
