Just Another Rather Silly MBA Ranking

PRINCETON REVIEW & ENTREPRENEUR PROVIDE NO TRANSPARENCY INTO A VAGUE METHODOLOGY

There is no transparency on how these factors or any other ones used are measured or weighted in the methodology. Nor are there index numbers to accompany each ranked school (such index numbers would show you whether one rank is significantly different than another). The people who put together this ranking would get a solid F grade in the most basic statistics course taught in business school. An F grade in journalism school would be a charitable gift. More likely, any reputable J-School would toss these jokers out of the classroom for violating every standard of ethical reporting.
