Business Schools ranking in India

Central Asia

The university degree system in India is similar to that in Europe. The first cycle lasts 3 years (4 years in the engineering specialization) after which one acquires a Bachelor's degree. After another 1-2 years, one acquires the Master's diploma. Three years of additional study leads to a PhD.

It is interesting to note that there are different names for the categories of education levels in the system: Universities (for the 2nd and 3rd cycle) and Colleges (1st cycle). Often, colleges are affiliated with a university. You will find information about the different universities (in English) on the Ministry of Human Resource Development website. The Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) are equivalent to the "grandes écoles" in France. Areas of IIT of Excellence is space, aeronautics, computer science, electricity, electronics, shipbuilding, civil engineering, materials science, metallurgy, mechanical engineering, textile sciences, manufacturing, biochemistry and biotechnology.
