    Sad news about Arizona State. Here in Phoenix, there are billboards all over the place bragging about W.P. Carey’s top-ranked status. This might be a little ego-bruising for them – though FT methodology tends to be a little quirky… to say the least.

    Surprised to see such a slump in the rating. FT should release a briefing with the list every year. We should get to know what process do they follow and how reliable the process is.

    I have been admitted to Washington Olin (and Ross Business School as well).

    Most of the times, the colleges that are not ranked are because they failed to give the minimum number of responses (from alumni). That is the reason why Olin was not present in ranking in 2011. Now Olin is back at # 30 within US.

    I am sometimes surprised how Olin can be ranked 20 by US news, 30 by FT and 41 by BW. Though everyone uses their own parameters, I think most of the importance should be accorded to what the current students satisfaction level is?

    For eg, as an International applicant there are lower ranked college like Iowa – Tippie which do a better job of placing Internationals than some of the college at the middle of the table.

    Frankly, you can count top 10 (not that difficult really) and the rest is all about what suits you as an applicant and future grad.

    How can Thunderbird fall 21 places, one of the main focuses of the school is international business?

    SMU….Why the fall?  Start a PhD program perhaps.
