Best Business Schools : Rankings from Forbes for 2005 [#permalink] New post 16 Sep 2005, 13:10
Forbes’ fourth biennial ranking of graduate business schools is out. For the first time, this year’s list included part-time programs.

The methodology used to rate schools was return on investment. The formula took a look at compensation five years after graduation minus tuition and the forgone salary during school. It’s this last part of the equation that points up a significant trend—the increased popularity of part-time programs. According to Forbes, 50% of MBA students are in part-time programs. Check these link out.

One fact to keep in mind with the Forbes ranking is that it appears to use the "list" tuition price for all schools. Even a $20,000 scholarship could easily change the apparent rankings from school to school (consider the effect of a 20k reduction in the tuition of Cornell).

Likewise, considering only the out-of-state tuiton can dramatically overstate the cost of many public schools. An in-state student currently pays some $34,000 less in total than an out of state student at Texas McCombs. If we include the time value of the tuition forgone, this would have a large impact on the rankings.
