Choosing a suitable B-School is almost like a management skill in itself. From the many options available, it is a tough test of one’s decision making skills to choose one. One has to examine and evaluate the school against a number of parameters. The choice made is crucial because it is not only instrumental in making or breaking the future career path, it also involves a considerable amount of investment.
After the obvious choice of the IIMs, one of the criteria that guide the decision is the vital point of placement. One needs to make sure that the returns are worth the investment, both in terms of money and time. Most B-schools are evaluated on the basis of their placement records; the better the placements, the higher their brand value.
