DON’T MISS: OUR 2014 LIST OF THE 40 MOST OUTSTANDING BUSINESS SCHOOLS PROFESSORS UNDER 40 or OUR 2011 LIST OF THE BEST 40 UNDER 40 BUSINESS SCHOOL PROFESSORS

  • Becca Golden

    Professor Sudio Sudarsan must be on this list.

  • SU

    Professor Geoghegan is the best professor I have ever had!

  • arun prakash

    John, can you do an article on TOP 20 professors based on their subjects like Finance,operations?

  • JohnAByrne

    Not only did we not receive Booth nominations from the public call, but after proactively reaching out to the school for nominations, there was still nothing. The school essentially said it could not pick out a couple of professors to nominate for the honor.

  • Ben

    What if USNWR or Financial Times or Business Week used your philosophy when ranking B-schools? “HBS, GSB, Wharton and Booth were all in the top-5 a few years ago…we wanted to spread the wealth around, so its why they aren’t included anymore.” Everybody’s a winner!

  • MarketEquilibrium

    Go Cornell! Professor Andrew Davis was indeed outstanding for my Operations course and a must take if the opportunity presents. Very interesting list and article. Thanks P&Q.

  • JBJ

    Anuj Shah at Booth should be in this.

  • Norbert Weiner

    Let’s go Yale!!

  • Matt

    The award shouldn’t be spread it should be inclusive of the very top 40 professors, and if the majority continue to remain on the list perhaps it will push those not on the list. The data is pretty quantitative and could easily produce an unbiased ranking based on evals/research the top profs.

  • JohnAByrne

    We attempt to spread this honor around. Adam Grant was on our very first 40-under-40 list. See here:

    and

    http://poetsandquants.com/2011/02/16/adam-grant-apprentice-styled-challenges/

  • JohnAByrne

    Yes, indeed. But the schools generally don’t report that data for quite some time. Here is the latest data on job placement:

    Here are the latest numbers on average salary and bonus:

  • Nick Papagiorgio

    It’s only April and the class of 2015 hasn’t graduated yet, so those numbers aren’t available at this time. Additionally, John will want to include the offers from 3 months post-graduation, so the full report that is released from the schools probably won’t be available until Q4 of this year.

  • bwanamia

    Too angry.

  • Recruiting

    John, can you do an article on how the schools did in terms of class of 2015 full time recruiting or class of 2016 internship recruiting?

  • Fred

    Where the heck is Adam Grant?

  • Oil

    Seems more like a list designed to include the most diverse possible group of business schools

    Find it hard to believe 3 of the schools that the best prof’s will choose to go to over anywhere else (and win the most coveted prizes from), booth, mit and hbs, have 0, 1 and 1 on this list respectively.
