World Best Business Schools Rankings

The Best International Business Schools

The global economy has stumbled badly in recent years with soaring unemployment rates and stagnant income growth. Yet most graduates of M.B.A. programs have a different story to tell. An in-depth look at the graduating class of 2006 across 98 business schools shows a group with average annual income gains of 9% over the past five years. This is on top of the already substantial compensation boost graduates saw right out of school compared to their pre-M.B.A. salaries.

The story is even better if you look at only schools based outside of the U.S. Graduates from the 24 non-U.S. schools in 10 countries we examined had annual salary gains of 11.5% in local currency.

Forbes’ ranking of M.B.A. programs focuses on the return on investment that graduates receive attending business school. The No. 1 program outside the U.S. for ROI is IMD, located in Lausanne, Switzerland which racked up a “5-year M.B.A. gain” of $230, 000. This compared to a gain of $118, 000 for the top ranked U.S. school, Harvard.

What really separates the business schools outside the U.S. is the number of elite one-year programs offered in Europe. Students are often able to get their hefty upfront investment back in less than three years. Packing the requirements for an M.B.A. into just one year results in a highly intensive program that can make for a brutal schedule. “IMD makes job stress seem like a walk in the park, but it sure prepares you well for it, ” says IMD grad Rok Trost. The payoff for that packed schedule is only one year of forgone salary and potentially a much higher return on investment.

The median salary for an IMD grad in 2010 was $247, 000 compared to $80, 000 before school. The program is unique in the elevated prior work experience of its students which at seven years on average is tied for the most among schools with the University of Warwick. Students at IMD are 31 years old on average. (continue)

UCSD is much, much better...

by edugirl

...than SDSU when it comes to academics.
According to the U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Colleges 2009," SDSU is a fourth tier school, while UCSD ranks #35 as "Best National Universities" and #7 in the "Top 50 Public Universities."
From the research you have done, you are already familiar with the undergraduate college system at UCSD and know that housing is integrated into the campus, so that lecture halls are frequently just steps from on-campus housing.
You probably also know that the main campus at UCSD is a 1/4 mile from the beach, while SDSU is a 30-45 minute drive from the beach

What's your program?

by EhhHarvard

Many of the programs at Berkeley are ranked either #1, #2, or #3 in the country - both undergrad and grad. Yes, in many cases, that means better than Harvard. Engineering, especially, tends to be a weak point for traditionally ivy league schools. Right now, it's mainly MIT, Stanford, and UCB for many of the sciences. Check out the rankings for your program, you may be pleasantly surprised and you may find the ammunition to justify your decision.
Even if your particular program is better at Harvard, though, it's unlikely to be much different. 34 out of 36 of UCB's programs are in the top ten, a percentage and quantity that no other school can claim
