Alumni responses contributed 58 per cent while data collected from school accounted to 42 per cent of the final score.

Asia rankings: Where does India stand?

In the Asia rankings, China has outnumbered India with four institutes in the top 10. But India's individual performance is commendable too.

The Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad which is positioned at number 2 has climbed up two slots to enter the top 20 this year -- it was ranked 21st in 2017 rankings and now stands at 19.

The IIM-Ahmedabad is followed by the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta which jumped up five spots from rank 28 last year and Indian Institute of Management Bangalore which maintained its 26th position globally.
