9780071378246: Businessweek Guide to the Best Business Schools (Business Week Guide to the Best Business Schools, 7th ed)

Scratching your head trying to figure out whether or not to get an MBA - and where to get one if the answer sounds like a yes? You've come to the right place. Here is the 7th and most comprehensive edition yet of a book that is considered the bible for all students and observers of graduate schools of business. Hundreds of thousands of applicants have relied on earlier versions of this book for its wealth of unvarnished, tell-it-like-it-is information and analysis of the top MBA programs. Deans and recruiters use this guide as a benchmark of how well they've put their ideas and strategies in place. This completely updated new edition ranks the 50 top business schools in the United States and another seven outstanding international programs. For this new edition, BW has increased the number of schools, students, and corporate recruiters surveyed, making its rankings stronger and more comprehensive than ever. BusinessWeek's survey methodology is both exhaustive and impeceable, resulting in a guide that is authoritative and highly reliable. To create it, BusinessWeek used thousands of surveys of graduates and corporate recruiters as its primary research material. BW sent surveys to 16,843 graduates of the Class of 2000 at 82 schools in the U.S., Canada and Europe, generating an astonishing 60% response. Another 419 surveys were sent to companies, which responded at the rate of 59%. Next, the BW team interviewed hundreds of students, alumni, corporate recruiters, administrators, faculty members, and deans to gain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the top schools. The result is a guide that reveals important information about the graduate business programs, the school environment, the curriculum and programs of each school, and the inside scoop on B schools that can't be found anywhere else. Each of the 50 U.S. schools profiled in this book is ranked according to a broad variety of criteria. For the 7th edition, BW expanded its rankings in several key ways, giving the survey and the school profiles even more breadth and depth than in the previous six biennial rankings. One key new feature is a measurement of a school's influence and prominence in the wealth of ideas and quality of research, something BW calls "intellectual capital.
