Harvard and Wharton MBAs nolonger surveyed for b-school ranking


Here’s an article in Fast Company about Harvard and Wharton no longer sharing their MBA students’ contact info for the surveying process to be included in the annual b-school ranking. Not sure what the real story is here…FC seems to think it’s a case of sour grapes.

    Another rumor circulating is Wharton and Harvard (and others) dropped in the rankings because the limitation on H1-B visas prevented a lot of their international students from finding jobs, which affects rankings.

    Whether this is true doesn’t matter. The rankings are a bit bogus anyway because what they measure doesn’t necessarily have a bearing on an individual needs. If a school goes up, they trumpet them as proof. If the ranking goes down, the school finds external excuses.
