Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
The question is not "Best MBA in NY" it should rather be..."Best MBA for me in NY" and then you should go about listing down your usual parameters. As it is repeatedly said in this forum..."Its all about the Fit" :D
NY: Johnson, although it is a great Business school, is not on the same level as Columbia GSB and Stern.
I would rate Columbia GSB and Stern about equal. They round out the top ten MBA Programs. Both are in NYC and both will get you great connections in Wall Street.
US: Wharton(UPenn) is the best. Harvard and Stanford business schools are equal to or just below wharton. A degree from one of these is worth more than a degree from any of the other top ten.
Global: Wharton is generally regarded as the best Business School in the world. Harvard Business School and Stanford GSB are also up there. Oxford Said school of business is Britain's top MBA program. Most of the british business schools, LSE, CAss, Warwick and Said included are known for Masters in Finance degrees.
Even though Oxford has a good MBA program, I would still say that any of the top ten MBA programs in the USA would be more would be better than Oxford because when it comes to an mba alumni network is one of the most important things.
You get into Harvard Business School, thats great, but you'll be working in North Carolina. Duke Fuqua would be a better choice than harvard in this case, because there are not that many HBS alumni in NC, compared to Fuqua alumni. Just an example.
Wharton, HBS, and Stanford GSB are of course the most prestigious Business schools.
The top ten MBA programs are kind of fuzzy and depending on you ask include different schools including:
Wharton HBS Stanford GSB MIT Sloan Northwestern Kellog University of Chicago GSB Dartmouth Tuck NYU Stern UC Berkeley Haas Columbia GSB U of Michigan Ross Duke Fuqua
Oxford Said school of business is Britain's top MBA program. Most of the british business schools, LSE, CAss, Warwick and Said included are known for Masters in Finance degrees.
I think that LBS is missing in your rankings here. LBS is the top performer in the UK. But in general, you make an interesting observation about MSc programs in UK (and by extension, Western Europe). Western Europe offers more MSc programs for business school than the US does.
Generally, in Europe it is more widely accepted that Ms in Finance graduates enter IB and the finance sector in general while those with MBAs enter management, technology, and other business areas. My point is in Europe banks consider Ms in Finance and MBA with the same regard , to say the least. And while MBA requires work experience, top Ms in Finance programs such as the ones offered by LSE, Oxford, Imperial, HEC, Warwick , and others generally accept students straight out of college. This is why many finance oriented students prefer doing Ms in Finance.
