India's top b-schools based on the alumni's job profiles!

For the first time, leading education magazine Careers360 has ranked India's top 75 b-schools on the basis of the companies where their alumni are employed and the type of profiles they enjoy. Read on to know where they are now and how much they are earning.

Final placement is the culmination of a long and winding journey that every MBA-holder undertakes and the beginning of a new professional journey.

A good start goes a long way in providing sustained growth for any aspirant. Hence the craze to get into a good school, where not only placement is assured, but a great profile too.

So far, students had only the take of their peers and disjointed news items to guide them as to the kind of jobs they can aspire to by joining a particular college.

To help students plan better, we, for the first time, have attempted to look at the kind of placements that an MBA aspirant can look forward to when s/he applies to a school.

Since colleges are very cagey about providing the info we turned to the next available source -- LinkedIn.

We identified at least 200 colleges ranked by one or the other publication and attempted to see the kind of profiles its alumni present to the world.

We narrowed our search to those who passed out in 2012 so that only entry-level jobs come into our database. Nearly 73 colleges had no or a few profiles on LinkedIn.

After the first level of scanning, we identified 132 colleges for which at least 50 profiles were available.

Post scanning 15,801 profiles, we could finally gain access to 5,231 profiles. We grouped the profiles on the basis of type of firm (MNC, publicly listed and emerging) as well the type of profile (managers, deputy managers etc and executives). Each profile was categorised into one of the nine categories and analysed.

The results were amazing. Top ranking colleges had substantial managerial profiles. For eg ISB, the topper, had almost no executive profile.

We have only presented the aggregate ranking. In the coming days we will present a pen picture of each college in terms of the kind of companies where the students are employed, type of work, location, and growth possibilities.
