Just curious about the ranking of Darden as an alumnus of UVa. Darden's overall ranking has suffered over the past 5 years. In the past, Darden was ranked amongst top 10 in the BW.
Definitely one of the top 3 general management schools.
Given that the ranking methodology employed by BW partly takes into account the so-called "intellectual capital", Darden's small size in terms of,say, # of academic papers published by professors can adversely affect its rankings??
I think that Darden professors are excellent teachers who mainly focus on the education of students, not only on their prestige in academic studies
Maybe the culprit could be the international diversity?? I know that FT highly places more emphasis on on this.
Appreciate for any inputs. thanks.
