Management Education in India has always been going through some very difficult times but more so in last few years. It has experienced closing down of many business schools in India, due to falling demand and poor quality of delivery. The students' perception of equating management education with placement has put the future sustainability of business schools in doldrums. We have a situation of increasing number of quality institutions and their campuses like IIM, ISB, IMT, SP Jain, TAPMI not only in India but overseas and on other hand there are a growing number of management institutions to fill the second and third layer demand of students willing to pursue their post graduation in management. The recent Supreme Court verdict of devaluing the power of AICTE puts another dimension on the future of management education in India. Under this background this research paper is an attempt to study the various ranking of management institutions in India along with a perception study of key stakeholders towards such rankings.
