    Look at the US News rankings coming next week. You should find some of that magic there.

  • Bob Savino

    They should rank the elite MBA you can obtain from all these schools on Coursera for free. It would be ranked #1.

  • Cody, Mr. NCO

    Its not all about what you learn, its about the network you build, and the contacts you make.

  • Bob Savino

    Yes, $100,000 and 30% travel overhead for a network I can build on LinkedIn and at real work is really worth it! :)

  • Ferdea

    or take short executive course at the target school, thats direct and stronger connection to the students and alumni.

    John & Sandy, When will you be updating your rankings to reflect the US News 2014 results?

  • Robert

    Hey money counts, at least when it comes to these phony rankings. I see a lot of schools that advertise in the Economist conveniently got Economist rankings. UC San Diego, really? Are they even accredited?

  • Robert

    People know which schools are good schools, but it’s impossible for someone to actually rank them without having attended every single one. Anytime someone pretends to be able to rank schools they immediately lose all credibility.

  • Peter Koeppel

    When will you be updating your rankings to reflect the US News 2014 results?

  • JohnAByrne

    Rather than update after each ranking, we wait until all the relevant rankings are released in a year and then update usually in early November. So we’ll wait until The Economist and BusinessWeek update their rankings this year.

    19 schools in your top 15? funny. And US News had H/S/W at the top… pretty good magic
