A Pool of B-Schools

This is in continuation to my previous post. (Click here to read the previous one)

Now that the entrance exams of many business schools have already completed and admission processes have started for this year, it’s high time to know some of the B-schools in India available for the dental graduates to prepare for the next year (2013). The following is the list of some of the institutes of India that I know.

Colleges for MBA in Healthcare Management (Full Time)
IIHMR, Bangalore
IIHMR, Delhi
IIHMR, Jaipur
IMS, Indore
KEM, Pune
SIHS, Pune
TISS, Mumbai and few others
Colleges for MBA in Hospital Administration (Full Time)
Apollo, Hyderabad
Balaji, Chennai
Birla, Jharkhand
Kasturba, Manipal
NIMS, Hyderabad
SIHS, Pune
TISS, Mumbai, and few others
Colleges for MBA in Healthcare and/or Hospital Management (Part Time)
AIIMS, Delhi
Apollo, Hyderabad
Asian Institute of Health Sciences, Mumbai (2 Years)
Faculty of management Studies, Delhi (3 Years)
Welingkar, Mumbai (9 Months), and many more
Colleges for MBA in Pharmaceutical Management
IES Management College and Research Centre
IIHMR Jaipur
IIMR Pharma Business School, Delhi
MIMA, Pune
Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), Mumbai
NIPER, Mohali
SIES, Mumbai
University Institute of Applied Management Sciences, Chandigarh, and many more
As for plane MBA, there are numerous AICTE approved and other B-schools in India. It becomes difficult to figure out which institute to join. There are numerous ranking systems available to select the best ones in India, but the aspirants are advised to consider any one ranking system as checking many rankings would lead to unnecessary confusion.
The aspirants are also advised to visit individual websites of interested institutes to know the admission process and go accordingly. The application processes for entrance exams would normally start by August every year.
As for the entrance examinations, the candidates would be tested on the verbal and mathematical ability in a typical MBA entrance exam. However there are some institutes which prefer to also include GK to test the General awareness of the candidate. The mathematical ability includes logical questions and in-depth quantitative questions and depending on institute’s preference, weightages would be decided between different components. Most of the healthcare related institutes prefer to concentrate on simple logical mathematical questions and moreover, high weightage would be given to verbal ability, reading comprehension and general awareness.
Disclaimer: This is a personal weblog. The opinions expressed here represent my own, based on research in real life and online portals. The schools mentioned above are alphabetically arranged and are not according to any rankings. There is no ranking system available presently for healthcare related colleges. The institutes with bolded names are some of the institutes which I consider to be good based on my research.
