Financial Times released 2019 Rankings


LINK: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... nking-2019

Interesting observations: Said is ranked above Kellogg and Babson is ranked above Rotman. It seems pretty crazy.... Anyone sees anything else whacky?


Here is the top 30 just for the record:

I find the position of CEIBS a bit surprising. Most of the Chinese students I know didn't even consider CEIBS when applying for US B-schools. This is despite all of them have plans to go back to China to work there.

Slight off topic question - I have heard this a lot - Chinese students looking to go back after US or EU MBA as opposed to many internationals looking for H1B and to stay. Do you know why that is different with the Chinese students? Are opportunities better or what is it?

I meant to ask this a few times but never got to it. Thanks!

I would say - All of the reasons you mentioned.

My evidence is anecdotal, but these observations come from knowing students at Kellogg, Booth, and Georgetown. H1B is obviously a big hurdle. Apart from that, most Chinese students are looking to get into MBB and the popular opinion is that getting into Shanghai and Beijing MBB office is relatively easier if you are studying at Kellogg or Booth v/s CEIBS. Apparently, the salaries offered by MBB is higher for US MBA students.

Additionally, the tech scene is growing rapidly in China and most of the Chinese firms pay equal to US salaries, if not more. Combine that with low cost of living and cultural know-how and the decision is somewhat straight forward.

Finally, one thing which most Chinese students hate is the networking aspect in the US. The cold calls, small talk and other softer skills that you need to have to be successful in the US are quite difficult for them to overcome. That's not saying that all of them feel this way, but most do.

In contrast, other internationals want to stay in the US for two major reasons- Money and/or cultural experience.

Thank you! Very interesting. I am still trying to grasp the whole China thing. It seems they have their own everything that works differently (their own google, FB, Twitter, YouTube, etc). I can see some value in that but also isolation as the result of it too. (not that you are isolated with 1.4 BN people but still)
