Thanks dzyubam this is very valuable. It surprised me that there are so many people on financial aid from the univ. Statistically speaking, most of the MBA student will be "subsidized" in some way or another by their uni. I thought they only give finaid to the highly qualified to keep them from going to another school?

That finaid percentage shows how many students got "some form of financial aid", which may not be much :).

Hi,

I noticed the annual fees tuition in the list. I'm trying to calculate the actual budget for my MBA degree fees and wanted to know the average living expenses. Can someone help me in that? I have a not so great score of 670 (Q47, V35) and am looking at Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Indiana, Purdue and Georgia Tech. I will also be applying to other Universities but I guess this list will give me a fair idea of what the other would be like.

Please help.

Thanks,


You might want to check out schools' websites directly for info about average living expenses. FYI Ithaca is gorges. Cold too..lol...great folks though

dzyubam, thanks for the table. I think it's very useful. However, I see a problem with just averaging the 4 rankings. For example, Georgia Tech, unranked in 2 rankings, jumps CMU, UNC, Texas, IU, etc., all of which have better ranking than Georgia Tech in the 2 rankings in which GT is ranked.

I think a better way to average the rankings is to normalize each ranking. For example, each ranking is scaled from 0-100 (0 being unranked). If a ranking only ranks 25 schools, each increment would weight 4 points. You can created a composite ranking that isn't skewed by unranked schools.

Thanks for pointing this out. This was supposed to be fixed (in particular the formula needs to be average, not sum and division).

Thanks a bunch dzyubam -- extremely nice to have all that info in one chart. Especially all of the round deadlines in combination with all the other data.

Any consideration for Forbes or WSJ? For your reference (some of the rankings differe from your list, but I'm not sure which ones are more current) >>

Hi

I have also posted this on the international b-school rankings.

Thank you again for the comprehensive rankings.
I do have a few questions however.
1) You placed Financial Times, Economist, and Business Week rankings. I am a little unsure as to which you or other find more reliable and how they base their rankings.
Does anyone perfer one over the other or should I regard on emore over another based on my goals?

2) GPA, how important is this in determining which B-school to pick?

3) I am 25 with 2 years of experience....this list is a bit daunting when I look at the average or mean of years of work experience and age. Should I be focusing on a certain ranking range or school since I fall well below the average? Should I start looking at top 50-150 schools?

Thank you again for this ranking chart!!

Thanks for the rankings list...but the mean age recorded against each school --> is it the figure recorded from outgoing batches or the figure recorded from entering batches ?

What does this FinAId in % signify? Is it upper limit % value for the scholarship/Aid chances of getting Aid.
