Economist.com Rankings? [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2009, 10:26
Not that I fully believe this (even though I'm at Haas and am probably biased :P), but it's still cool to say Haas is #1 in the US! :D

Looks like career services is a big part of this ranking, and we do have a pretty kick ass career services organization.

Anyway, no hate please, just another one of the rankings craziness that shows we shouldn't put too much emphasis into how a school is ranked (even US News and BW). :)

Curious to see where they get "Diversity of recruiters" from..... Kellogg had recruiters from some absurd number of companies come to campus and people who went to ~300 companies out of 600 people and yet we got ranked 40 on this point. Booth which sends its folks to a narrower group of companies got 5 (only use Booth because I know it due to proximity).

I love the Economist - but I think they over think their rankings.

These are interesting. In general a lot of these rankings seem to be pulling away from being U.S. focused. It seems like the top notch international programs are really beginning to gain some clout. I wonder how the typical recruiter (who is not necessarily as ranking obsessed as we are as applicants) would view a IESE/INSEAD/LBS versus the traditional H/W/S? Anyways, it's shaping up to be a good year for Haas with this and the recent Nobel prize...

like I said, don't hate. And please spell "HAAS" correctly. :P

But to Steel's point, I'm still trying to figure out how they came up with this ranking myself. Granted, I'm not going to complain if some publication puts my school #1 for once. :D

The Nobel Prize was cool though. We had free champagne for everyone the next day. Woot!

Speaking of Haas, I love watching the Levi's marketing case video produced back in the 70's starring Peter Haas, Jr. and a whole bunch of guys with big hair and big mustaches. And a whole team of people who launched a line of Levi's suits only to crash and burn after failing to listen to their focus groups.

I appreciate that they are prepared to tell you how the rankings are arrived at.

Which raises the question that - if graduating salary is the biggest driver in the FT league tables, you may as well not bother reading it. I knew it was big, but 40% is simply stupid.

Oh yeah, we watched that one too, it was pretty funny.

As for the FT salary, I guess it's only the salary that counts, and not the differential? Haas is ranked pretty low on Financial Times because of that differential (many go into non-profit, social impact, entrepreneurship here and/or come in with more work experience thus higher pay).

Anyway, here's our newsroom on the Nobel prize.

This was the video case for the marketing class I sat in on at Sloan last week. Pretty interesting stuff and the prof. was great. There were about a dozen people not in the class who actually sat in aisles just to listen because this guy was that good.
