Winners & Losers In The 2013 Financial Times MBA Ranking

On the other hand, there were 15 business schools that gladly took the places of the schools that fell off The Financial Times’ list. After No. 61 The Lisbon School, there was No. 64 Tilburg University in the Netherlands, No. 69 Mannheim Business School in Germany, No. 72 University of Bath’s School of Management, and No. 81 Tulane University’s Freeman School. The latter institution is currently embroiled in a major controversy because it recently admitted that it had supplied inaccurate data to U.S. News & World Report so it could be ranked higher on U.S. News’ ranking. Freeman admitted that it turned over inflated data on average GMAT scores and the number of applicants to the school for five consecutive years.
