It is no wonder that  Chennai and the nearby states have the largest number of B-Schools which have evolved as departments of engineering colleges. One of the best known MBA programmes in the cluster is offered by Department of Management Studies at IIT Madras.


Two old war horses that keep the flag of the region high are National Institute of technology, Trichi and Bhartidasan Institute of Management, Trichy.

One of latest entrants in the management education scene is the Great Lakes Institute of Management. Set up as a greenfield venture by Prof.Bala Balasubhramanian of Northwestern University, the school in a short span has emerged as a leading centre for management education.

Schools emerging out of their parent department’s engineering prowess is also a phenomenon in Chennai. Schools like Sona College of Management, Kumaraguru College of Technology. MEPCO MBA, SSN College of Engineering and SRM School of Management are all departments that gained their credibility based on the reputation of their respective engineering college parentage.

University departments too have a long history  of offering MBA programmes so  do affiliated colleges. Some like School of Management Pondicherry University or Department of Management Studies Anna University, are past their  prime, but do survive because of their history and heritage. Autonomous colleges like IFMR, Chennai, SCMS, Cochin, Thiyagarajar School of Management are respected and some like IFMR and LIBA top the rank list too
