MBA Programs on the rise [#permalink] New post 11 Mar 2010, 13:21
Hi,

What programs does everyone think are on the rise? Meaning programs that may not be in the Top 10 or Top 20 now, but that will probably be there in 5-10 years?

Also, what programs do you think are losing prestige?

I think programs that emphasize entrepreneurship are going to rise, and programs that emphasize finance and wall street are going to decline.

I suppose it's worth starting with looking at some of those schools that jumped straight into the FT rankings this year - HKU and then those that plummeted out like NUS!!

I don't expect the top 8 to go anywhere anytime soon. I think you'll see schools rise and fall in the rankings, but to guess which school (if any) will make the top 10 means picking schools in the top 10 to drop out.

I'll play the game, and this isn't really a surprise. I think Yale is on the rise. Dean Synder is awesome and will really help expand their reputation to also include being good at finance. The University as a whole has an excellent reputation, and it's one of those things that you could tell someone with no knowledge of B-school rankings, and they'd believe it without batting an eye. If you told someone without any knowledge of b-schools that Yale is number 5 overall in b school, they would have no reason to doubt that. They're a top 3 undergrad institution, a top 3 law school, a top 10 med school, why should anyone doubt that they can be a top 10 b-school.

I don't really want to pick a school to fall out, but realistically, NYU seems like the most logical candidate.

I'm also very biased here, but I do expect Emory to rise within the rankings to be a top 20 program within the next 8 years. I don't think they're a candidate to crack the top 10, but I'm making a pretty big bet that they rise into the top 15-20.

UCSD is another school which is rising fast, atleast in expectation. They are expecting accreditation this year. I am very curious where they will end up.
