Christ and XIME are from the same league. Christ University is better in terms of faculty and ROI and Xime is a little expensive. In chirst University, you will get exposure amd colleagues from foreign as well. The teaching is a little old school at christ as compared to xime & xime comes with a Xavier's tag. Both of them are located in IT hub of india. So, the best choice, winning with a few points will be chirst University.
Out of Alliance school of business, Christ University and XIME, Christ University is the best for MBA in my perspective.
Though, all the three universities are good but Christ University has a slight edge over the other two.
Also, it offers good course structure, study material, faculty and placements.
Hope this answer helps!
Xime, sdmimd, christ University, all three are average colleges for mba.
I'm listing the preferred wise rank which is made after keeping all the factors in mind like faculty, placements, roi, campus, internships, location, etc.
1st preference-- christ banglore
