    You guys need to understand that there is a world outside of the US. You don’t ask yourselves why Wharton partnered with INSEAD? I am one of those people only interested in INSEAD. Planning on applying to US schools only if INSEAD dings me.
    In terms of jobs INSEAD = HSW in the US in MBB, if you are American interested in going back to work there you just need to do the exchange with Wharton and that’s it. So why bother with a two year program that is twice as expensive?

    Also INSEAD is not for everyone, if you have never stuck your nose outside of the US, INSEAD will ding you. If you only speak one language, INSEAD will ding you.

    And I repeat I will turn down any HBS, Stanford and Wharton to go to INSEAD. As a matter of fact I only applied to INSEAD and I am not the only one in this case.

    As a statistician, let me tell you this. You are really stupid. Thank you.

    Of course it is no secret that Harvard, Stanford, MIT are the best overall universities in the US.

    The FT rankings look at MBA programs, and for that Harvard, Stanford and Penn (Wharton) are the established too schools, MIT (Sloan) is close behind.

    Not for undergrad. Berkeley has many good grad schools but for undergrads it is a stepchild to the ivies, Stanford, MIT, Duke,Chicago.

    How i got my Desired Loan Amount from a Reliable Loan Company (JONES INVESTMENTS LIMITED)

    Hello everybody, I am Nina Jamie currently living in Toronto,Canada. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation by September to December 31 2015 last year and i needed to refinance and pay my bills and start up a Business this year 2016. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, i was introduced to a man of God by a friend named Clifford Boatin and i got a loan sum of $900,000.00 on the 4th of January 2016 and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment. So my friend, if you must contact any firm or investments into any company with reference to securing a loan with low interest rate of 4% and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr Jones Investment limited (JONESINVESTMENLIMITED@OUTLOOK.COM) He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and I decided to let people know more about him, He offers all kinds of loans to both individuals and company and also i want God to bless him more. You can contact him through his email via: [JONESINVESTMENLIMITED@OUTLOOK.COM]

    God bless you all.

    There is no college called “IMM Ahemdabad” please correct this to “IIM Ahmedabad”.
    Also i find it funny that you say that the US has “only” 47 colleges in the list. There are 196 countries on the planet . One country (USA) comprises half of this list and you are still complaining that that is too less.
    I think the fact that the other 195 countries have representation on only half this list is not fair. If we were to make this ranking by a global voting process it would be drastically different.
