Poornima University Joins The Ranks of Top 100 B-Schools

Awards and recognitions are always welcome, but the sense of achievement multiplies twofold when it comes from a much-coveted and revered source. In a recent survey conducted by The Week, Poornima University has been recognized as one of the top 100 destinations for management studies in India. The Week is one of the largest circulated English news magazines in India. We take this opportunity to thank every member of the Poornima family whose steadfast efforts and hard work have been instrumental in adding this new leaf to Poornima’s elaborate list of achievements.

The Selection Panel

The Hansa Research Best B-Schools Survey was conducted in August through September 2019. The nominees were selected by a diverse panel of students, experts, and recruiters from 21 Indian cities. It comprised of 585 current students, 529 aspiring students, 276 academic experts, and 75 recruiters.

The Selection Criteria

A closed-ended questionnaire was given to the panel to nominate and rank the top 25 B-schools in India and the top B-schools within their city. Further, in-depth interviews were conducted to understand the reasons and criteria behind the ranking. Some of the nominations were rejected as they did not fit the primary ranking criteria i.e

  • Nominated B-Schools must have passed at least three batches.
  • Nominated B-Schools must have admitted more than 50% of the sanctioned intake

Once the final nomination list was prepared, a dedicated website was created and links were sent to all nominated B-schools for collecting factual information. The final ranking was announced based on the response and properly weighted factors.

The Road Ahead

While this recognition is no doubt uplifting and extremely encouraging, we believe there is still a lot to be done and achieved. This is an important milestone and a key indicator of Poornima’s growing stature as a quality education hub. There is still a lot of room for self-improvement and we are sure we can achieve even greater heights in the future.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the members of the Poornima fraternity, including a current and previous batch of students, our support staff, and everybody else for their support and dedication in making Poornima University one of the best MBA colleges in Rajasthan. Also, it is a time to be not blinded by laurels, but a time to further strengthen our commitment towards providing the most affordable world-class education. As we keep reminding our MBA students, it is time that we remind ourselves too with the same principle of success i.e., “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
