Just kidding.

But seriously, any idea why these schools don't have business schools? Aren't business schools huge cash-cows for universities?

On a related note, I believe Johns Hopkins is launching a business school. I wonder how they'll fare in the rankings. Will they start out in the 50's and maybe crack the top 30 after a couple years, or will it be a slow multi-decade climb up?

I think the Hippies at Brown would revolt against something as base as as school that promotes capitalism. lol.

Princeton's MFA is pretty new but if I wanted to go in to banking I would look seriously at Princeton. Its super competitive to get into and their placement stats seem like everyone gets in to very highly regarded banks. It is TINY though...the class size is something like 50 people and some of those finish in one year. As their reputation builds and they get more alumni then I see them as having a very strong brand especially considering the name. I would picture it competing with the ultra-elites in the world of banking in the future.

In fact, the small class size is what appeals so much to me about the place. The other attraction is of course, the sheer amount of interfaculty electives that they offer. Of course I can ignore all the computer science electives, but it just shows how much in touch these guys are in terms of the modern finance industry.

I feel that I can really "learn" the topic in depth here. Fingers crossed they find me worthy of being taught there :)

I've always thought of Princeton as sticking to the traditional disciplines, almost like a liberal arts college at the graduate level. You can study History, Math, Physics - things you can get a PhD in. They do not have any of the professional schools, I sense, because they are not "academically oriented" enough.
