Terrific !!! In fact this ranking here absolutely nails it for me. Of course there is scope for variation within clusters, but this is the sanest ranking I have ever seen....

There is column which says "Alumni Recommend Rank" - Business schools from which alumni would recruit MBA graduates.

Ranking as per this column is :

1. HBS
2. Wharton
3. Stanford
4. Kellogg
5. LBS
6. INSEAD
7. Chicago
8. Columbia
9. MIT
10. NYU

12. Haas
13. Ross
14. Duke
15. Darden
16. IMD
17. UCLA - Anderson
18. IESE
19. Rotman
20. Ivey

Does the ranking make more sense now?

I don't know... But I would certainly rather attend Oxford, Cambridge or Yale, which are not listed above, than some Ivey, IESE, Rotman or even Darden. Simply, these are strong international brands while Darden is not.

Of course, that is just my opinion. Everyone should pursue MBA in the school he/she consider best for the achievement of future career goals.

The alumni rankings are actually very solid. Since it asks which school they will hire from, it shows where job opportunities are. However, since it only ranks and doesnt show anything like percentages its hard to judge the ranking. I mean the difference between Kellogg and MIT might be tiny but the difference between MIT and NYU could be substantial, or visa versa.

If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

The rankings are of more benefit to schools in terms of candidates. Some people will apply to schools purely because of its rankings. It doesn't affect recruiters in the short-term. In the long-term, there may be some swings in terms of the type of candidates a school produces due to its ranking position, so you may see a slow shift or expansion in where recruiters would recruit from (outside of the traditional powerhouse schools).
