An MBA is not necessarily the ticket to fast-track career success that it once was. Companies are down-sizing, competition for jobs is fierce, and now, more than ever, getting into the right programme at the right school is critical. This work is an inside look at the 40 best B-schools in America. Based on extensive new survey, it profiles the best graduate business schools as rated by people who know them best: recent graduates and corporate recruiters. It peeks behind the slick brochures to provide a no-holds-barred look at every facet of the most prestigious programmes, including quality of teaching, curriculum, campus lifestyle, track records of placement offices, average starting salaries for graduates, and more. There are up-to-date rankings and profiles; information on the best regional, part-time and executive MBA programmes; coverage of who is applying to B-schools and why, and what the hottest subject areas are; advice on selecting the right programme, scoring high on the GMATs and hitting the mark on the application and written essay; and hints on how to get the school to foot part of the tuition.

From Booklist:

Among the several guides to graduate business schools, Business Week's has always been a favorite. Unlike Barron's and the Graduate Management Admissions Council's comprehensive and descriptive directories, Business Week's is selective and evaluative. This update of the 1993 edition made news when it moved the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School to the number-one spot ahead of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, and the guide also credits itself with being the impetus for several schools to revise their programs in response to criticisms directed at them in the magazine's polls of graduates and corporate recruiters. Business Week's ranking of the top 20 schools and listing of the second 20 is based on these polls and reflects what it calls "customer satisfaction." Campus life, outstanding faculty, prominent alumni, student body, and teaching methods are factors in the profiles of the 40 schools. Figures for average number of job offers and starting pay for graduates are also provided. An introductory section discusses how and why to select a business school, and closing chapters consider 15 quality programs that are less well known but have relatively low tuition, as well as note the best schools outside the U.S. Highly recommended.
