Dare2Compete, one of India’s largest student communities, has put all stakeholders of the B-School ecosystem under a single umbrella, with Dare2Compete Awards, where efforts of all- Students, B-Schools and Companies, are acknowledged and celebrated.
Today, through its social media handles and website, Dare2Compete revealed the rankings for D2C Competitive B-Schools 2020 amid COVID-19. The rankings were decided on the basis of students’ meritorious performance in corporate campus engagements through student competitions. The true mark of a B-School’s success can be gauged by how well its students fare when put up against their peers from across the nation.
IIM Bangalore topped the D2C Competitive B-Schools 2020 ranking, outshining everyone. IIM Kozhikode, known for its lush campus and its enterprising students, was ranked a close 2nd. Having lifted the trophy last year, IIM Kozhikode had to make room for IIM Bangalore this year. Shots have been fired and things are bound to heat up in the coming academic year.
