Top B-Schools in South India for Management Aspirants

The southern region of India is a popular destination for engineering education. However, this region boasts of equally great options providing quality management education, some of them belong to top-rung B-schools of the country such as IIM-Bangalore, the baby IIMs at Vishakhapatnam and Tiruchirappalli, ISB-Hyderabad, Department of Management Studies – IIT Madras, Institute of Financial Management and Research etc. While the majority of these top B-Schools down south are private stand-alone institutes, there are several others that are part of large universities such as SRM University, Manipal Academy for Higher Education, Symbiosis (Deemed) University etc.

The admission cut-off declared by management institutes is a major factor that decides applicants’ eligibility to apply at respective schools. CAT Cutoff for top B-schools is released individually and release separate cut offs for other exams. However, apart from the cut-off scores, students shortlist their choice of institutes on the basis of academics, infrastructure, alumni feedback and most importantly, the placement record of the institute in question. 

The bottom-line of pursuing a Management degree program in today’s times is to bag a well-paying job. The promise of assured placements with reputed corporates leading to a rewarding career is what drives candidates to choose among the best available institute fitting with their own academic capabilities and entrance test scores.

In this article, we attempt to collate a list of the top most B-schools in South India for Management Education. Majority of these institutes accept CAT scores and declare their respective CAT Cut-off scores right before the admission process starts. Candidates that meet the cut-off criteria can apply and shortlisted ones are called for the selection process which comprises mostly WAT (Written Aptitude Test) and/or Group Discussion and Personal Interview. The selection process obviously differs from institute to institute.
