Universities and Institutions across India make a competitive display of various rankings they earn annually on their websites and social media to attract prospective students. Among these rankings, one of the rankings is the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NRIF)ranking which considers Graduation Outcome Scores as one of the assessment components while ranking educational institutes. In case of global accreditations also, there are points for inputs, processes and the outcomes. The outcome, which is usually placement of the students is should ideally be regarded as the most credible measure to rank a business school.
Graduation Outcome is the parameter which evaluates the placements of the institutes. GPH [Combined Metric for Placement and Higher Studies] and GMS [Media Salary] are the key factors considered here.
The Graduation Outcome (GO) Score primarily measures the success of the students after graduation. This is as an indicator of the institute’s competence to transform students and enable them to get good jobs. GO’s evaluation is based on placements or students’ employability, or their ability to pursue higher education, which in turn showcases an Institution’s effectiveness in teaching. GO Scores also take into consideration entrepreneurship in the ranking.
However, usually MBA students do not really understand the relevance of ‘graduation outcome’ while selecting a B-School, rather they value the overall ranking of a B-School.
As a B-School, FORE School of Management strives for excellence and growth and these are reflected in its steady rise in the graduation outcome scores of NIRF ranking.
The data from the last three years reveal that in 2020, 126 recruiters visited FORE School of Management campus with placement opportunities, and the highest package potential was Rs.30 LPA. The number of companies visiting the campus in 2021 increased to 136 and further to 156 in 2022. The highest package offered in 2022 internationally was Rs. 41 LPA.
Similarly, assessing the GO Score of FORE School of Management as per NIRF from 2020 to 2022, there was a jump from the 26 th position in 2020 to the 21 st in 2021, to the 19 th in 2022. This steady climb in NIRF ranking is credited to the meticulous measures adopted by the institute to enhance its offerings and setting a target of placing its students 100 % with prominent companies by constantly recalibrating curricular and extracurricular activities by highly qualified faculty with continuous corporate interactions, global exposure and many other activities during the two- year programme.
In this context, it is important to take a view of the GO Scores of the NRIF ranking for 2022. FORE School of Management ranks 19 th in the NIRF list, all Institutions Included. The ranks received by top 30 Institutions in terms of graduation Outcome scores are given below:
