These rankings will be much more proficient than USNews because it takes many more factors into account. Check it out, it comes out Thursday April 27th at 5pm.

Vote for your favorite school to get profiled, i think you might find it unusual which school currently has the most votes.

    No way that many people voted for Richmond - even as a joke. Some guy with nothing better to do just flooded it with Richmond votes.

    Yeah your favorite schools get profiled. It is good to see that Nova and Richmond will probably be profiled, give some other good b-schools besides the same ones everyone on this site seems to orgasm over.

    USNews is garbage, they dont take nearly as much of a quantitive analysis of something like this. They only use what other deans know about other schools.

    really? USNews is garbage? If you bother to take a look at where the top banks, hedge funds, etc recruit from, they seem pretty inline with the US News rankings.

    no they won't they don't take that into consideration at all. That is the point of Business Week, to show where the recruiters go and where the most ambitious students are who decide to go to the top 35 MBA programs

    it doesn't matter if it's reflected in the way they analyze their schools. the fact of the matter is that the schools that are at the top of the USNews lists are recruited better than ones in the middle or bottom.

    It seems private schools will be ranked higher in the BW rankings from what I can see 9 publics were taken out from the top 25 in US news and replaced by 8 privates.

    "It seems private schools will be ranked higher in the BW rankings from what I can see 9 publics were taken out from the top 25 in US news and replaced by 8 privates."


    part of this ranking is based on job placement/SAT/GPA, and you know that private schools will benefit from this. Schools like URichmond are not easy to get into at all................ and private school business majors come from wealthier backgrounds , have more networking opportunities b/c of their parents, are usually more job-oriented, so they would have better job placements on average.

    Georgetown can potential make the top 10 list on BW, because the job placement is so good there, and the kids are brilliant statistically. schools like Wisc and Washington will have to sacrifice.

    i feel like this ranking isnt about the QUALITY of business education, it's rather the quality of the student body (which is important, coz it influences networking opportunities), school's general prestige (this helps kids to get jobs) and how employers value these schools' grads (also reflected from job placement). it's a list for people who want to make a lot of money, but dont necessarily care about how good the business school is ACADEMICALLY.

    but, what's the no.1 reason people do undergrad business? they all want to make tons of money.

    you said it perfectly Untilted. Although University of Richmond is by definition a liberal arts school as of now and their business program is ranked somewhere between 75-90 by U.S. News does not make their business program bad.

    The same goes for the University of Miami. Overall it is a great school with many hardworking and intelligent students. I think Businessweek will look more at the quality of the student body in order to determine their rankings.

    Exactly, its about the quality of the school, not how tough it is to get into.

    Private schools are almost guarunteed to do better because oof their competetiveness, but honestly they are most probably harder to get into. Besides the top publics like Uc-berkeley, Umich, UVA and UCLA and such there aren't many really good publics.
