I bet this one has escaped most of us.

go directly to the list:
http://www.hm-treasury.gov.uk./media/F2 ... bas_50.pdf

the page:
http://www.hm-treasury.gov.uk./pre_budg ... _admba.cfm

and check the explanations:
http://www.hm-treasury.gov.uk./media/F6 ... 211204.pdf

Some comments:
1) Of course it's UK-biased.
2) All the usual suspects are in.
3) It may help distinguish among Near Elite, Near Elite Frontier programs.
4) It includes European schools along with US schools.

Hope it helps. L.

PS: I'm not intending to immigrate into the UK, I just ran into this link while checking Wiki's article on MBA (I know, I'm obsessed...).

Crazy, the number of rankings that are there and how schools strive to play with the number/metrics to improve their standings.

After a quick search, I didn't see any updates for 2005 or 2006, even though the explanation for 2004 said they would update the list annually. Did anyone else see one? (I don't think I want to move to the UK, but who knows?)

I was browsing the site and could not found any newer versions. Also note that it's included in the "pre-budget" folder and not in the budget folder. Maybe the idea / regulation was killed?

Too many questions...

It is relatively easy for any one of us to move to the UK. If you can get into a top business school, most likely you can also qualify for their 'Highly Skilled Migrant Program' - HSMP, that is intended for qualified people to live and work in the UK.


More information at:
http://www.workingintheuk.gov.uk/workin ... /hsmp.html

It is a points based system (much like Canada, Australia and NZ) and you can calculate your points at:
http://www.workpermit.com/uk/hsmp_calculator.htm

Enjoy!

Actually, the ranking I posted is supposed to be a list of the b-schools that the UK government considers as being worthy of automatic granting of minimum points for that particular program. That's why I consider this particular ranking less BS than other commercially driven rankings. The methodology is simple, as they only evaluate:

- after school avg. income (adjusted by purchasing power parity per country, but not per region within each country),
- % employed after graduation.

Cheers. L.
