U.S. News MBA Rankings
I confess I am not the biggest fan of the rankings. There is so much more to say about a business school program than the numbers it shows. Can you really express the way going through a top MBA program changes your life around by the “yield”? If a school goes up in the rankings, will this directly affect our MBA experience? How great will the impact of this rise in the rankings be in our career?
So why are we so hooked on the rankings? Why can’t we wait until they come out? Maybe it has to do with some good ‘ol USA competitive spirit. I guess we enjoy seeing our program cruising right on top of all the rest. And if it does not, we strive to make changes to make it happen the next time. However, is the evaluation fair? Can someone at U.S. News honestly say bias is not present?
Either way, for all of us out there who cannot be disconnected with this aspect of the MBA programs, here are the top 25 as per U.S. News’ latest report April 2009 – and the link to the U.S. News Article – http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-business-schools/rankings
