Taking admission to a top MBA college in India is the dream of many students as well as working professionals. These colleges are known for their stringent educational standards, stellar campuses as well as jaw-dropping placements. Take a look at the top 10 government & private MBA colleges in India.

Top 10 MBA Colleges in India 2022

Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a popular course in India. It is offered in over 6,500 colleges across the country. Common Admission Test (CAT), which is one of the most popular MBA entrance exams in India, sees over 2 lakh aspirants every year. And there are many more who have aspirations to join MBA courses through many other exams that are conducted for MBA admissions in India.

While the high number of MBA colleges in India do offer variety, not all maintain the same quality of teaching, campus facilities, and placements. In these and many other factors, some colleges emerge better than others and simply offer a higher quality of education and related services. It is evident in the fact that the alumni of top Indian MBA colleges can be found in leadership roles across the world. 

Why You Should Care About Top MBA Colleges

While going for an MBA course, experts advise that students should always try for a reputed b-school. This is because experts understand that the reputation of your college carries weight when you are looking for career opportunities after MBA. Thankfully, NIRF has made this task easier for all students. Students now can refer to the NIRF ranking of top colleges and universities as a trustworthy source to make their choice.

In this article, we have also covered the top private and government MBA colleges in India. These are the colleges that have made a name for themselves in the management education sector through their dedication to quality education. One important point to note before we go on, it is not always the NIRF rank that will matter. Factors such as location, availability of courses, and fees will also influence your decision. Weight in every point and then apply.

Top 10 Govt MBA Colleges in India 2022

If we see the past trends, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) have always been crowned on the list of top MBA colleges in India with IIM Ahmedabad leading the pack. The trend has continued in NIRF 2021 rankings and government colleges including IIMs still occupy the top spots in NIRF rankings.

One major shift, however, that was seen this year was more Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) climbing the ranks of top MBA colleges. The BTech + MBA combination does work, apparently. Jokes apart, here are the top 10 government b-schools in India.
