Forbes 2017 Rankings:


1. Wharton
2. Stanford
3. Harvard
4. Kellogg
5. Tuck
6. Columbia
7. Booth
8. Sloan
9. Haas
10. Johnson
11. Darden
12. Ross
13. Yale
14. Fuqua
15. Anderson
16. Kenan-Flagler
17. McCombs
18. Tepper
19 BYU - WTH?
20. Mays - huh? Not Stern or Kelley, or Goizueta, or Foster?


So I guess per Forbes, it is not H/S/W but W/S/H - WSH!
As an FYI, Forbes is more of "exotic" rankings so don't worry if your school did not make it into top 20, 40, or 50.... Owen is 48 - Ouch, beat by Manderson (what is that?)

Hi bb

I was shocked when I found Cornell ahead of Darden, Ross and Duke. If you moved the arrow in head of some columns, you will find some data belongs to 2012 which is too old to depend on.

@bb Im being kinda lazy here but what do you think the criteria is that caused this jumble? What are they doing but others are not doing like how is this kind of like a 2015 business week Duke situation?

Nearly useless ranking imo. They use a strange roi figure to determine their ranks. Alabama manderson had a pre mba salary of 25k going in and a 65k going out if I'm remembering correctly, so their roi is huge. 65k post mba salary is essentially undergrad STEM salary at any large state school, certainly not a figure that would suggest being a top 50 b school. There's also some funky cost of living adjustment going on which hurts a lot of urban schools and helps rurals.

Basically, any ranking that has an elite school jumping 6 ranks and jumbling the top 10 or so every ranking should be treated with a large amount of skepticism.
