Insider’s Guides to the Top Business Schools

Over the past eight years, Poets&Quants has become the foremost authority for information on the top business schools in the world. From the start, our mission has been to help young professionals with one of the most important decisions of their lives: whether to get an MBA degree from a highly selective business school. Outside of buying a house, it could well be the most expensive decision you will ever make.

An editorial partnership between Poets&Quants and mbaMission, a leading admissions consulting firm, has enabled us to provide Insider’s Guides for FREE to our readers.

What do our Insider’s Guides offer?

A more thorough analysis of a school will not be found elsewhere on the web. These in-depth reports are well-researched and well-written. They contain the kind of detail and analysis that will help an applicant gain a real feel for a school, its culture, offerings, and outcomes.

  • Defining characteristics of the school’s location, class size, curriculum, teaching methods, facilities, alumni base/involvement, and rankings
  • Courses, experiential opportunities, faculty, and clubs related to MBAs’ most common career areas (consulting, finance, entrepreneurship, etc.)
  • The admissions committee’s stance on GMAT/GRE/TOEFL scores, recommendations, the waitlist, layoffs/unemployment, and other application elements
  • Notable professors and social/community events

Obtain your FREE Insider’s Guides by simply completing the form to the right. You will automatically gain access to guides for the following schools: Columbia, Johnson, Tuck, Fuqua, Harvard, Sloan, Kellogg, Stern, Stanford, Haas, Anderson, Booth, Ross, Darden, Wharton, and Yale.
