Our Latest Podcast: Making the Most of MBA Rankings
U.S. News & World Report is scheduled to release its annual MBA rankings tomorrow, and many of you have already taken part in our contest to guess the order of the top-10 schools. (If you haven’t, there’s still time…click here!) Though limited to business schools in the United States, the U.S. News ranking is widely regarded in the graduate management education space as one of the most credible of the many MBA rankings out there.
But like all MBA rankings, the results published by U.S. News tomorrow should serve as just one data point among many in the thorough research you conduct to determine the best business school to fit your own individual needs and goals.
The latest episode in the Clear Admit MBA Admissions Podcast series focuses on precisely this idea. Making the most of any MBA ranking requires clearly understanding its methodology. What one methodology deems the most important criteria in comparing business schools may not matter as much to you and vice versa. Your personal alignment with a given methodology can serve as an indicator of how useful the resulting rankings may be for you.
In this latest podcast, hosted by Editor-in-Chief Jeanette Brown and produced by Contributing Editor Jonathan Pfeffer, Clear Admit Co-Founder Graham Richmond dives deep into the topic of MBA rankings and provides prospective applicants with valuable guidance on how to make the most of them. It’s insight you’ll appreciate with tomorrow’s rankings release as well as the many that follow throughout the year.
