ONLY CAT SCORES FOR IITs MANAGEMENT COURSES

Those aspiring to a management course in IIT will now need to appear for only one entrance exam (CAT) as the IITs are all set to do away with the JMET (Joint Management Entrance Test). Although IITs have been accepting both JMET and CAT scores, students usually appeared for both the tests. Since the structure and content of the two examinations are the same, IITs have planned to use only the CAT scores for the admission process. This will, hopefully, ease pressure on the students. However, it may not be possible for all management courses to opt for this process.

The 2011 QS World University Rankings

It was through the most wide-ranging surveys of their kind ever conducted that the 2011 QS World University Rankings were compiled. Numbers alone do not tell the whole story, especially since universities are complex. While other rankings focus primarily on measures of research productivity such as citations, the QS exercise counterbalances this information with the views of global academic and graduate employers drawn from a truly representative global sample. Thus QS has dramatically increased the scope of its surveys in 2011. This year’s rankings draw on the views of over 33,000 academics and 16,000 graduate employers from around the globe.

No Indian University in Top 200 of World Rankings

Continuing its domination of the world rankings, the United States has taken 13 of top 20 and 70 of top 300 places, while 14 of 19 Canadian universities have ranked lower than 2010. Germany, a recent entrant as an educational destination, has no university making it to the top 50 despite its Excellence Initiative. University of Cambridge retains its number one spot ahead of Harvard, according to the QS World University Rankings 2011. Meanwhile, MIT jumps to the third position, ahead of Yale and Oxford. In Asia, many institutions—especially those from Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, and China—have fared well at a discipline level in subject rankings produced by QS this year; this is particularly true in technical and hard science fields.

India’s Best B-Schools

The 2011 edition of Business Today’s annual special issue on business schools has thrown up some surprises in the B-school ratings game. Although the top three positions are still occupied by the Indian Institutes of Management, they no longer appear in alphabetical order: A-B-C, or IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, and IIM Calcutta, an order that has played itself out eight times in the 11 earlier rankings done since 1998. But in this year’s BT-Nielsen ranking of India’s Best B-schools, the top trio has shuffled into B-C-A. For the first time since 2002, IIM Bangalore finds itself perched at the top. What has helped it most is its unmasked ambition for growth and an increased thrust on research.
