5 most prestigious degrees.

<p>I stumbled upon this, while searching for something on the net. The 5 most prestigious degrees a person can have. Do any of you guys agree with this list. For instance, an MD from John Hopkins is highly regarded. But an MBA from Wharton is more prestigious than on from Harvard imo. </p>

<p>Lists like this are ridiculous.</p>

<p>I can think of a lot of degrees that I think of as "more prestigious" than an MBA from ANY school.</p>

<p>What's the difference about what is "prestigious?" Who are you trying to impress? (I don't mean "you".)</p>

<p>Like finding a college that's the right fit, getting a degree/major that's the right fit is the important thing.</p>

<p>Can you imagine going through life with a prestigious degree in something that you can't stand doing every day? What's the point?</p>

<p>Prestigious.....depends on according to whom. </p>

<p>Also, why is this limited to MD, MBA, or JD? Um, what about Music (Juilliard), for example? What about other fields?? MFAs? Other professional degrees like engineering, architecture, etc.? PhD programs??</p>

<p>soozie, i agree. it's all so retro.</p>

<p>A young man from our community has just received an MBA from Harvard.
His dad came to the US from Mexico, was a runner at our little known state college. A very hard working guy, opened his first mexican restaurant a good 20 years ago. It is now a small chain, albeit in our area only.
Just had a talk with DH the other night about it. Wonder if the young man will stay and help run the family business or will be doing something totally different. Great family!</p>

<p>IMO, MD from any American Med. School on all 5 most prestigious spots.</p>

<p>Any MD, or a PhD in a science, has a more rigorous academic challenge than an MBA. This opinion is from observing MBA students at a top program who have time to frequent bars nightly, travel every weekend, and study very little (far less than the undergraduate population).</p>

<p>I think you are all reading it wrong. I'm pretty sure this list is saying the most prestigious school for each of these prestigious degrees.</p>

<p>Yes, they are not discussing the rigor or academic challemge. It is about prestige of degree.</p>

<p>The title of this link says it all....ask - ahem - MEN...dot com. If they asked WOMEN, they would get a different take on the suitability of the question in the first place!</p>
