The BW Education Research team conducted a survey to determine the best B-schools in the country. Ten broad factors and 50 sub-parameters were used to evaluate B-schools. The rankings were created using objective data obtained directly or indirectly from business schools, as well as a perception survey performed among industry and faculty. The findings were analysed by the BW research team before being reviewed by the BW editorial board.
A total of 1,500 industry leaders and B-school faculty members participated in the perceptual survey, which required them to rank the B-schools they were familiar with on a ten-point scale.
