I have included some NEF schools on the forum to facilitate discussion. If certain schools prove to be popular, I will increase the coverage of them. As usual, depending on your specifications the cluster of a school can change quite easily. Thus, do not place inordinate weight on the presence or absence of a particular school in any specific cluster.

So far the response to these schools has been quite low. I hope that over time applicants recognize that many of these programs have great resources and strong connections with regional and local businesses.

It is important to note that many of the most respected firms hire students from these schools as well.

Hjort - how did you decide which schools get into what clusters? Intuition?

I used a form of cluster analysis that primarily included admissions and employment information. As with virtuallly any taxonomy, there is always the difficult problem of determining what to do with borderline cases.

One can find a number of graduates of the NEF programs serving as executives at major corporations.

I posted in Wisconsin thread, but will copy over to here as well:

The original posting in this thread is obviously dated (2005), and most people probably realize that Wisconsin has increased in rankings and reputation over the past few years, but I thought I would just point this out to people who may be new to researching MBA’s and stumble across this. Wisconsin was ranked 27th in the US News most recent (2010) MBA rankings. Wisconsin has changed their curriculum to offer specializations in about 8-9 fields. In many of those fields, they offer one of a kind programs that other traditional MBA’s don’t compete with if you are interested in one of those fields. Examples of this include Arts Administration, Actuarial Science, or Marketing Research.

I was admitted to several top 15 MBA programs, and choose Wisconsin over them due to Wisconsin’s offerings in my specific area of interest. My specific MBA specialization has 100% job placement (even during the recent recession) and was a no brainer even over the elite MBA programs. There is much more that can be said about Wisconsin, but I just thought this assigning of tiers is dated and I think most would agree that they belong a tier or two higher than this.
