A Wacky Follies Look At MBA Rankings

 

No one has ever ranked Columbia Business School No. 1, and it’s unlikely to ever happen.

But when it comes to MBA Follies’ shows, there’s no question about it. CBS rocks the house.

The latest performance includes this must-see satire on MBA rankings that allows Columbia students to poke great fun at all their rivals, from Wharton and Booth to Kellogg and Harvard.

The video starts inside the offices of U.S. News & World Report and goes on from there.

A sample of the hilarious lyrics:

You know it’s kind of hard just to be Top Ten these days, our building isn’t great and we do too much cocaine. Our library may be crowded and our food is real gross but we got Warren Buffet and Wall Street is so close.

Wharton’s in top eight, they overcompensate. At least we know we’ll never be confused with Penn State.

We get that Harvard’s up there, and Stanford, we agree. But Booth at number three? Are you fucking kidding me?

Enjoy!
