A story in Financial Express examined factors like gender diversity, attracting the best faculty, and high-quality research, which have been keeping ISB among the top schools globally in the FT Ranking. In the story, Professor Siddharth Shekhar Singh opined that ISB's ranking is better than other Indian management schools primarily due to the ability of the institute to attract the best faculty from abroad, which results in better job offers for the students.

“Also, ISB produces more A-level research than all the other Indian B-schools combined. Institutes like IIMs are facing legacy issues and have largely become teaching institutes whereas ISB faculty gets peer-reviewed pieces published in global academic journals regularly. This has helped us in attracting faculty from across the world, which is not the case with IIMs.”
