IIMs not eyed by US Recruiters - or are they?

While the IIM's have a great reputation at home, it seems they are yet to make a lasting impression on recruiters here in the US. The Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive Business School Year 5 Survey released this week is based on the opinions and behaviors of 3,267 M.B.A. recruiters who hire full-time business-school graduates No Indian Business school figured on their (recruiter's) preferred International list.
But a closer look reveals how "International" this list really is. It seems IIM's never had a chance. This is yet another ranking list that ignores Asian Business schools. Only schools from Europe, North America and Central America were considered. "US News" only considers European and Canadian schools in its International B school rankings.

Recruiter's Top International Business Schools (WSJ)
  1. IMD
  2. ESADE
  3. Carnegie Mellon (Tepper)
  4. IPADE
  5. London Business School
  6. Ivey, Western Ontario
  7. Thunderbird
  8. Mass. Institute of Technology
  10. INCAE
THES- QS rankings of International Schools lists IIT Delhi as 57th on their list on International Universities.
