Academia believes NHRDN lends credibility to B-School Rankings 2013

The academia have high expectations from the National Human Resource Development Network-People Matters B-school Rankings 2013 as they believe the former lends credibility and fairness to the survey

“The fact that it is NHRDN who conducted the exercise gives it credibility. I trust that the ranking will be far closer to reality in terms of what exactly a B-school is adding towards the development of the workforce.”
Dr Bibek Banerjee, Director, Institute of Management Technology (IMT), Ghaziabad

“Our commitment to inclusive social change, to diversity and alliances across sectors in the industry and with institutes across the world makes us unique in all aspects and helps us create socially sensitive managers who can work towards building a sustainable organisation.”
Prof. Bino Paul, Chairperson, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai

“We have developed a programme called ‘We care’. In this programme, students have to spend three years at a stretch with an NGO. This sensitises them towards social realities, helps them understand the world and makes them better human beings and managers.”
Dr Debashish Sanyal, Dean, School of Business Management, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai

“We are glad to note that NHRDN and People Matters are collaborating in bringing out a national B-school ranking survey based on a multi-dimensional methodology. We look forward to the survey and sincerely hope that this collaborative effort raises the benchmark in a definitive manner.”
E. Abraham S.J, Director, Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI), Jamshedpur

“NHRDN is a non-aligned, non-partisan and non-commercial third party of HR professionals. HR professionals interact with MBA graduates the most during the hiring process. So, their views on how a B-school or its graduates are doing should be of some value.”
Prof. Gautam Sinha, Director, Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kashipur

“This ranking is being done by an association that has first-hand experience about the quality of management education and knows the gaps between industry requirements and offerings of business schools of India. Also, the framework chosen by NHRDN evaluates a B-school on parameters based on logic and market perception.”
Dr H. Chaturvedi, Director, Birla Institute of Management Technology, Greater Noida

“The current ranking system in India is full of errors and there have been a lot of misgivings as far as rankings are concerned. NHRDN is a professional body that is high on ethical conduct and I believe that they will do a fair and credible ranking for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
Dr Jitendra K. Das, Director, FORE School of Management, New Delhi

“This country has been manipulated by rankings that are based on perception and impressions, where muscle power can influence the output. The NHRDN - People Matters ranking is the only ranking that is linked to pure data, validated, integrated and authenticated by students, faculty and academic deans. The robust methodology and process will help in modifying perceptions by validated information.”
Dr Pritam Singh, Director General, International Management Institute, New Delhi

“It is a wonderful initiative. No other organisation but an HR organisation can understand the impact of education on students and employers. Most of the rankings are done purely on quantitative figures without any evaluation of the ability of an institution to impart education.”
Dr Renu Luthra, Director, Galgotias Business School, Greater Noida

“Our vision is to nurture holistic, socially responsible and employable resources. Because of our focus on employability, students have to go through a mandatory internship of six months in the last two terms, which prepares them for their corporate careers.”
Sanjay Padode, Secretary Centre for Developmental Education Society, Bangalore, IFIM Business School, Bangalore

“We emphasise on student partnerships to inculcate entrepreneurship and leadership skills. Our CEO Forum, a weekly session of experiential learning, is a unique platform that helps students interact with business leaders and understand corporate realities.”
Dr Sanjeev Bansal, Director, Amity Business School, Noida

“Our institute is run by an industrialist and hence they know the finer nuances of what the industry requires. Our curriculum is continuously revised by industry experts and they also participate in the delivery of the course. This not only makes our students employable, but it also helps in building entrepreneurship skills.”
Dr S.R. Musanna, Director, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow

“Till now, most of the rankings have been done by magazines, journals etc. and I doubt their understanding of the education system plus their research methodology is perhaps not appropriate leading to bias. Since NHRDN is an association of HR professionals, the ranking should be more appropriate.”
Prof. S. Sriram, Executive Director, Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai

“The fact that the NHRDN is involved in the ranking makes it more interesting because it is similar to stakeholder feedback and this feedback can be used constructively. Also, NHRDN, through its methodology, evaluates B-schools on qualitative and quantitative parameters unlike other rankings.”
Prof. Dr Uday Salunkhe, Group Director, Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research
