IMT-Nagpur scores a Top-10 hit in Indian Management B-School rankings
Institute of Management Technology, Nagpur received Super League standing in the latest B-School from west India survey by Indian Management magazine.
IMT-Nagpur was ranked sixth overall in west India B-Schools, but number one in infrastructure and number two in intellectual capital.
Indian Management rated schools based on six categories: intellectual capital, admissions and placements, infrastructure, industry interface, governance and scale of operations.

Earlier rankings under different B-school 2010-11 surveys, saw Business World place IMT-N, ninth in infrastructure and 18th in intellectual capital, while CSR-GHRDC, in October, 2010, rated it seventh among top B-Schools of Excellence.An OPEN C-fore Survey ranked it 11th among private B-Schools in India and in 2010, Business India said IMT was 18th among private B-Schools.
