Financial Times is a UK publication, so you'd expect LBS to get some love. In its latest rankings, LBS is ranked #1 globally, with schools like INSEAD, IE, and HKUST also coming in the top 10.

As far as its US schools, here are their rankings (after removing the international ones)

US top 15 rankings

1. Wharton
2. HBS
3. Stanford
4. CBS
5. Sloan
6. Booth
7. Stern
8. Tuck
9. YSOM
10. Fuqua
11. Kellogg
12. Ross (tie)
12. Haas (tie)
14. Darden
15. Anderson

Among the US schools the one big outlier seems to be Kellogg - other wise the so called M7 seem to make up the top 6. I'm quite surprised to see us(LBS) retain the #1 ranking - I'd have thought that the financial crisis would have driven down employment / salary data. Not complaining though :) But you have to admit that FT always has some surprises (e.g. ISB moving up to 12, HKUST to 9 and IE to 6)

2. Wharton
3. Stanford
4. Kellogg
5. LBS
6. INSEAD
7. Booth
8. Columbia
9. MIT Sloan
10. NYU

They don't actually use live currency data, BSD_Lover. It is some relative standard of living adjustment, which is how they force ISB so high (you will not get a $100k salary in dollars from ISB).

Don't the FT (Pearson Group) have a pretty big stake in LSB? I think they do in ISB also.

The salary quotient also has a bit of a lag in it - I expect things will move strangely in 2012 as a consequence.

What concerns me is the employment column for US schools. Even top rated Wharton grads face only 85% employment 3 months out of the school. A bunch of top 10-20 schools have employment rate in 70s which means that at least quarter if not third of the people doesn't have a job after being effectively unemployed for 2+ years and saddled with humongous student loans. This really doesn't inspire confidence.

andromeda in general job market is better now than it was 12 months ago. Actually most of my close friends are already settled and some people received more than one offer. I see though a movement of international going back to their original countries or moving abroad to Latam, HK, Singapore, Seoul, etc. Actually strikes me the fact that Dabots and 2 other people from booth are going to Seoul to work for a giant South Korean corporation and neither of them is Korean.

I believe that one and 2 years from now, job market will be much better than now.

Times are tough right now... Wharton grads face only 85% employment 3 months out of the school. Hope things will look better in a year or two.

Yes biggest concern is to get employed and repay the student loans.

andromeda - I would agree with kwam, 2009 was an evil year. As one who was a day away from being in the three month unemployed at a school, yet had a job from my summer internship (at one of the biggest companies in the world, that then revoked in the Spring) - a lot of unusual things happened that hadn't since 2001.

Then there is why people are unemployed - I know people who still are, who enjoy some form of luxury that they are waiting out for the job they always wanted. Some are looking in to other things. It might turn out that the 2009 class got themselves into really interesting things as a result of the abnormal way things went.

I would fully expect in a few years time that most the people who want jobs will get them before graduation. There will always be some that don't, and there will be reasons (even Wharton can have some people that it is difficult to recruit).

Financial Times Rankings Actually Matter? [#permalink] New post 26 Jan 2010, 19:12
I am a complete neophyte for mba programs (except the M7 concept). Do the Financial Time Rankings actually matter or is US News the only one that does?

in my opinion, you shouldn't put too much stock in any of the rankings. they all have their flaws; at most, you should look at the data that's given in these rankings. some other important data points to look at are: % of graduates entering field/industry you desire, as well as specific recruiters that come on campus. you can probably find this info on the schools' websites

I totally agree!!! Doesn't make sense. I thought BW rankings are a lot more accurate (tho the 2010 rankings isn't out yet). Even the US news rankings appear a bit skewed but more in sync with BW. I have a very hard time agreeing with this FT rankings....
