I was at the Oregon St game last week and didn't mind the loss for that very reason. Though it was one of the most painful games I've ever sat through.

I'm curious to know how NYU is going to do these days. They have the reputation of being just a finance school so I wonder what will draw people to that school now (except for the very obvious geographic reason).



Yeah, same way, I drove up for the Cal game too. Either way I wasn't all that sad for the lost because they all have good chances of taking the PAC-10. So right now it's Oregon st. Plus can't wait for UCLA to beat USC is the WORLD's BIGGEST UPSET, (not really, Michigan vs App St will probably be #1 for a while)

I've wondered about NYU and columbia about how the collapse affected them.

Also, am I the only person who feels weird referring to Chicago as "BSB"? That reminds me of the Backstreet Boys to be honest :P


ditto. i'm worried this will tarnish the global reputation that the backstreet boys have built over the last decade. brilliant move by chicago though to try & build off that BSB brand!

Live from BW... ;-)

Top 10 International.

10. Oxford (Said)
9. IESE
8. Toronto (Rotman)
7. IMD
6. ESADE
5. LBS (what the f***?)
4. Western Ontario
3. INSEAD (?*&#^*Q@) ;-)
2. IE
1. Queen's

Top 10 US:
30. (yep, they start from 30 ;-) Vanderbilt (Owen)
29. Georgia Tech
28. Washington (Olin)
27. U. Washington (Foster)
26. Maryland (Smith)
25. USC (Marshall)
24. Yale (???????????????????)
23. Emory (Goizueta)
22. Brigham Young (Marriott) - that's better than Yale ;-)
21. Texas (McCombs)
20. Notre Dame (Mendoza)
19. Carnegie Mellon (Tepper)

8. Duke (Fuqua)
7. Columbia
6. Stanford (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
5. Michigan (Ross)
4. Wharton
3. Kellogg
2. HBS
1. Chicago

Now 40min for Qs. If there is anything interesting, I'll post.

>>> Student surveys = 45% of the ranking, recruiter survey = 45%, 10% for number of articles published by faculty

>>> Several schools had "low student survey score": Washington (Olin), Maryland (Smith), and........... Yale! (I guess 720 GMAT didn't help them ;-)

>>> Q whether rebranding hurt (in the past) Sloan, Kellogg - i.e. will it impact Booth in the future? Answer: usually no impact on rankings.

>>> Recent gift to Booth didn't have any impact

>>> Booth was strong in every category: #1 in the corporate rank, #2 in the grad poll

>>> top 5 for student satisfaction: Kellogg, Booth, Michigan, UCLA, HBS, Wharton

>>> they mentioned that the recent name change made them confused... they are not sure how to call Chicago (I thought it's Chicago Booth officially...?)

>>> BW is the only ranking that includes students opinion (and that's why they differ from US News and others...)

>>> top 3 from recruiters perspective: #1 Booth, #2 Stanford, #3 Wharton (no love for HBS folks ;-)

Ok, I'm done with live broadcast ;-) Here is more http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/rankings/

This method just seems so unprofessional. Announcing the next 30 schools in chat style one-liners?

Don't know about east coast bias, Rochester Simon is nowhere to be found while SMU and BYU leapfrog Yale(can't be too happy with this). I'll definitely wager that Yale can still out-drink them.

Duke, Cornell and Indiana the big winners here, it's hard to move up in the top 15, even a spot, and they did so.

Was there ever an assertion of East Coast Bias in the BW rankings? There are 3 Midwest schools in the top 5.
