How to find Strength of an MBA Program ? [#permalink]

Hello,
Had I been applying to Top Notch Schools I wouldn't have been worrying about this, but unfortunately my Average profile ( Indian IT male) and below par GMAT score ( 690{Q50, V32}, AWA 5, IR 6} ) force me to apply to Tier-II schools and ask this Question.

For Example, MSU Broad has a Very strong Supply Chain Program and on the other hand University of Arizona has a strong MIS program.
Is there any source from where I could find such details?

Good questions.

The best source of insight on this point is the school's employment stats and curriculum. If a lot of grads are going into a particular field, that is a great indication of school strength in that field. If knowledgeable faculty teach what you want to learn, then it probably has the strengths you seek.

However it would be very time-consuming to go through a lot of schools employment stats and web sites to gather this data and analyze it. So I recommend you use the specialty rankings at BW and US News as a first step in your research. Unfortunately, I couldn't find BW's specialty rankings; I did find this article.

US News' specialty rankings are at http://premium.usnews.com/best-graduate ... ss-schools . You may have to pay to access them.

If FT or any of the other major rankings have specialty rankings, I would look at those too. Just don't rely on them blindly. After this first step, then go to the web site and ensure there is substance behind the ranking.

Best,
Linda
