Indian School of Business (ISB) PGPMAX (Post Graduate Programme in Management for Senior Executives) has been ranked 1 in India and 53 globally. The announcement was made today after the release of the Financial Times 2020 EMBA rankings release.
ISB Alumni from PGPMAX Class of 2017 were surveyed for this year’s ranking. This assessment has brought forth some other interesting findings, such as PGPMAX being ranked No 11 in the standalone programme category in Asia.
The school is ranked No 12 globally in terms of salary today (Average alumni salaries three years after graduation). The salary increase is measured based on the average difference in alumni salary between their salary before the EMBA and now. The PGPMAX programme is ranked #28 globally for work experience of its students.

It becomes more critical for the experienced executives to equip and brace themselves up to be ahead of the curve with the current circumstances. The need of the hour is to reinvent and gear up to meet uncertainties & looming challenges.”
