The best way of selecting a Management Institute is to go for the best in the country. Going to the best institutes ensures quality education, competitive peer group, good facilities, great atmosphere to pursue your studies and obviously the best jobs. However, if one is not sure of any specific factor or if there is not much to choose from, then, the best way of selecting an institute is by its reputation.

Some of the factors that you need to consider while selecting the institute are:

Reputation :It is important to ensure that the reputation of the institute is good. This could be found by talking to the alumni of the college or even getting information from people who have completed their MBA from other institutes

The specialization that you wish to pursue and are most interested in should be a part of the "majors" in the institute.

Recognition - Degree or Diploma - PGP / PGDM / PGDBM / MBA:
The next point to consider is whether the institute is recognized by Industry.

The location of an Institute is not important for the premier institutes. Employers seek out the best institute irrespective of its location. However, for the others, it would be better if the location is near a commercial hub, so that even if employers do not visit the campus, the student has an opportunity to come in close contact with potential employers.

Campus and Infrastructure -
Large campuses and in-house facilities give the institute an atmosphere conducive to better education. Hence it is important to see that they have the required facilities.
