We create state and national rankings based on the following information. We calculate the using the ranking factor and the percent of importance we’ve to that factor.

Our ranking methodology, like any other is extremely flawed. We do this to give you ideas and a starting point to see MBA programs in a new light.

There is no broad-broad based ranking mythology that will find the right program for your life situation.

We are skeptical of ranking programs, yet we do it because it helps as a starting place.

If there were 10 metrics for choosing the right MBA program for you, the rank of the program on MBA Guide, U.S. News, Forbes, Poets and Quants, The Economist, Bloomberg Business Week would be about 10th in our consideration.
