Indian B-Schools – Higher the seats, bigger the fees!

5

Education is getting expensive – I am sure no one doubts that fact. Be it Government or Private Institute the fees are easily in Lakhs. Only a fraction of students can afford it and that too by taking Education loans.

Getting admissions in these premier Business Schools is even more difficult – You probably have to be amongst the cream of the lot to get admissions in IITs and IIMs.

While researching on the fees charged by these premier institutions, I hit upon a very interesting visualization and thought it would interest our readers a lot.

The following 2 visualizations give information about the total seat intake by an institution and fees charged by them. I was quite surprised that both these aspects are directly proportional to each other.

The colors of the boxes basically denote the fees charged by the institution, while the size of boxes denote the total seat intake by them every year.

Let us take example of IIM Calcutta, where the total intake is 460 seats every year and fees are 13.5 Lakh rupees. Amongst the IIMs itself, IIM Ranchi has least intake of seats and their feed is also lowest amongst all IIMs (about Rs. 6 Lakhs)

Governement Business Schools seats Vs Fees

Among all the Private Colleges, ISB Hyderabad offers maximum seats (560) and their fees is also the highest amongst all colleges in India (Rs. 21.5 Lakhs).

Private Business Schools seats Vs Fees

Most of the colleges here stick to the theory of “Higher the seats, Bigger the fees”, except FMS Delhi, which has moderate seat intake of 226 seats but has the lowest fee structure of only 20,000 rupees (I am actually quite surprised – Can anyone confirm if this is true ?)

If you want to see the above interactive visualization, you can go to IBM’s “Many Eyes” portal.

    NOW WHAT I CAN SAY IS THAT GONE ARE THE DAY OF B SCHOOLS WHERE SOMETHING WE LEARNT. NOW B SCHOOL IS DOING ONLY A BUSNIESS AND LOOKING FOR PROFIT.

  2. DSP says

    Yes, indeed the fees of FMS is among the lowest in India if not world and if by any chance you are graduating from delhi university you need not to pay the registration charges as well.

  3. Dibyasundar Nayak says

    Ah.. This was eye opening! Btw yes, the fees of FMS is very low and as low as Rs 20,000.

  4. Charu says

    Well yes arun the competition to get through in the colleges has got tougher over years. The concern is do these colleges ensure quality with the increase in the number of seats & fees. I passed out in 2010 from amongst one of the top private colleges (do not wanna name it) but all the claims done in orientation or before admission(basically payment of fees) were futile. i paid 6 lacs….still wondering was it worth it !!!!!
