This should be the age at matriculation. Guys, correct me if I'm wrong.

I have a question. Is the age, the age when you begin your MBA, or it is the age when you are admitted ?

Thanks dzyubam.

Forgive me for the further inconvenience, but the matriculation age is then your age when you begin your classes, not the age when you are admitted or when you applied ?

PS: I am non-US, therefore I am unfamiliar with some notions natural to you ;)

Guys, here is a comprehensive "Decade" ranking of all the top MBA programs. I used the BW, USN, and FT to compile the rankings. I created it because I wanted to see how the programs hold their rankings over time.

Enjoy!

Given that I was only comparing American schools in this ranking I removed international schools from the FT ranking. That explains why American schools are ranked higher in my spreadsheet than on the actual FT rankings.



Sorry :)

for me Tuck, placed 18th is way ahead of IE (spain) placed 8th. :)

Haas really 25th? :lol: :lol:

I would place it above Tuck or about same ranking if not better

I wonder how FT comes up with these rankings. So subjective

Your BW ranking is wrong. I think you have Kellogg and Wharton mixed up!

No, I double checked the input and that is what was published over a ten year period with BW.

Rankings should be just done in tiers lets be serious...

Tier 1 - Harvard/Stanford
Tier 2 - Wharton
Tier 3 - Chicago/Columbia
Tier 4 - Kellogg/MIT/Tuck
Tier 5 - Duke/Yale/Ross

Rest starts here

frankly, Poets and Quants seems to have a thing against Wharton..

I dont believe chicago out does wharton..the prestige of wharton is simply something booth will never have.

it goes without saying, top three are going to H/S/W followed by Booth, Kellogg, Columbia, Tuck,

I like the P&Q rankings, it seems reasonable, as it combines the five major MBA rankings - Economist, FT, BW, Forbes, and U.S. News.
Too bad it doesn't include schools outside US.

Based off some quick calculations I did earlier that I’m not claiming to be error-free, the just released Financial Times rankings should cause a little bit of movement in the cumulative GMATCLUB Fulltime MBA rankings. (I only looked at the Top 20, not all the way down)

Chicago Booth down 1 to 3rd
Stanford up 1 to 2nd

Dartmouth Tuck down 1 to 9th
Northwestern Kellogg up 1 to 8th

Yale SOM down 2 to 15th
Cornell Johnson was tied with YALE for 13th, now tied for 12th with NYU Stern
Michigan Ross up 1 to 14th

Carnegie Mellon Tepper up 1 to tie for 16th with UCLA Anderson

& Texas McCombs up 1 to tie for 18th with Emory Goizueta

Not that any of this matters in the least. :roll:

Thanks for sharing, but still believe it should only be a reference point. I would not pick one of the Top10 BS if i am not interested in the major it has.

Does anyone have a historical trends of the rankings over last 10-30 years?

The more I look into it, I realize that rankings do change a lot over time.
For example, 10 years ago, currently strong Kellogg used to be much stronger (in terms of rankings), and stanford was not considered top 1/2 etc. Who knows what'll happen in 10 years from now? I guess it validates the statement that rankings do matter in the short term, but in the long run, personal achievements trumphs the MBA brand.

That's a solid point; I have personally never looked at b-school rankings older than, say, 2007 or so, and it interests me to think that Stanford may have consistently found itself on the outside looking in or that Kellogg had slowly slipped its power grip. I'm particularly interested in Yale's trend over the next decade or so, as well as even Johns Hopkins business school which isn't on anyone's radar at the moment, but carries with it a significant brand name recognition.

Thanks but this ranking is seriously FLAWED. You are comparing apples to oranges.

1) You only Rank US schools but include international ranking sources such as Economist and FT that include international schools.
2) You need to adjust your ranking and this is how you do it. Take out non-US schools from Economist and FT and re-rank them. For example, Columbia would be ranked #4 rather than #5 from FT and MIT Sloan would be ranked #5 rather than #7.
3) If you'll rank non-US schools, you can only use Economist and FT as your source (not credible sources), because US News and BusinessWeek do not compile ranking that combined non-US schools with US schools.
4) Can you please adjust the rankings correctly? Your flawed ranking is being viewed by so many potential applicants. If you make these adjustments, your ranking will look materially different.
5) By the way, consider adding Forbes, Find the Best (http://business-schools.findthebest.com/), and TopMBA (http://www.topmba.com/mba-rankings/glob ... th-america) from QS Global 200 Business School Report 2012.

The updated ranking is full of BS. Remove FT and Economist rankings please. Add back Forbes. Those British magazines know nothing about American schools.

For anyone who actually uses the Economist rankings, the 2012 one is now out:

The Economist's ranking is plain laughable. Anyone who knows something about the MBA programs will just ignore it. Virginia no.3??? Wharton no.13????!!! No need to elaborate further. I reckon that poets and quants does a pretty good job with its ranking.
