Worlds best business schools
One year after dropping from top dog to bronze medalist, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business was named the best graduate business school in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. U.S. News touted the school’s post-graduation employment rate — 83.6 percent of full-time program graduates are employed — and “the largest alumni network in the country” as two of the key reasons it ranked the University City institution ahead of its peers. President Donald Trump is one of those Wharton alumni, though he graduated from the school’s undergraduate program, not its graduate program. Trump received a degree in finance and graduated in 1968. Last year’s full-time enrollment at Wharton, the ranking says, was comprised of 1,742 students, 56.3 percent of whom (or roughly 981) were male and 43.7 percent of whom (or roughly 761) were female. According to U.S. News, another Wharton perk is the ability … [Read more...] about Wharton reclaims top business school title in U.S. News’ latest rankings
Theron Mohamed, provided by Published 6:40 am CST, Thursday, March 7, 2019 Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Nearly 3,700 recruiters were asked to score 30 top business schools on reputation, creativity of graduates, and other measures for Bloomberg Businessweek's "Best B-Schools" ranking. When we combined the scores to create an overall ranking of business schools, Harvard didn't make the top 20. Harvard may boast one of the most famous business schools in the world, but it doesn't impress some recruiters. Headhunters scored the Ivy League university poorly on Bloomberg Businessweek's "Best B-Schools" ranking of full-time MBA programs. Recruiters scored 30 leading business schools on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). They compared the schools' ability to produce diverse and high-quality candidates, the creativity of their graduates, and how well their students are trained compared with peers from other schools. They also assessed the value of each school's brand, its … [Read more...] about Headhunters ranked the top 30 business schools. Harvard barely made the top 20.
Andrea Blankmeyer, the 31-year-old chief financial officer for the startup Transfix, attended Harvard Business School for one year before dropping out of the two-year MBA program. Business school was a good way to get companies to notice her, she said, but after she earned a summer internship and a job offer, she said she no longer felt the need to finish school. Staying in business school isn’t always the right choice for everyone if it’s not helping you achieve your ultimate goals, she said. Dropping out of Harvard Business School is a difficult decision to make. After all, the school is one of the most prestigious and exclusive business schools in the world, accepting just 11% of the more than 10,000 applicants it gets each year. But for Andrea Blankmeyer, leaving Harvard was exactly what she needed to jump-start her career in finance. Blankmeyer, now the 31-year-old chief financial officer for the startup Transfix, left HBS in 2015 after completing just one year … [Read more...] about A 31-year-old startup CFO who dropped out of Harvard Business School halfway through explains how she knew leaving was the right choice
