CAT 2017 Top 50 B-Schools in India

By Asakti|Updated : April 27th, 2017

CAT 2017 is one of the most popular exams of the country, conducted by the IIMs for the admission in their management programs. Not only IIMs, there are many other Top B-Schools which accept CAT scores. To read a comparative analysis of XLRI/SP Jain vs IIM A/B/C, follow that particular link. The exam was held in December the last time. CAT 2017 is also expected to be held around the same time. 

This post shall give an idea of Top 50 B-Schools accepting the scores of CAT 2017. The Ranking is split into 5 parts:

1. Top 10 B-Schools

2. B-Schools ranked 11-20

3. B-Schools ranked 21-30

4. B-Schools ranked 31-40

5. B-Schools ranked 41-50

Note 1: The in each slab is given in no particular order. This is because they are very comparable to each other. For example, IIM A and IIM B are very comparable to each other. We have not said that IIM A is No.1 and IIM B is No.2 or vice-versa. Please take a look at the Top 50 B-Schools accepting CAT 2017 scores with that in mind. 

Note 2: IIMs accept NRIs based on GMAT scores. We have ignored that as it turns out to be a slender number. 

Note 3: This ranking is based on the facts and figures of previous years.
