In this day and age, having a business degree is a prerequisite for attaining many of our career dreams. Luckily, Business Insider is here to give you the inside scoop on the institutions that will take you the furthest.
A degree from a top business school can mean a higher salary and a dream job. But where you get your MBA from matters. And when you’re about to drop, say, $200,000 on a MBA — especially in this economy — you want to be sure that you're spending your hard-earned money in the right place.
So, what is the best business school in the world? And which school is most likely to land you the job you want?
Unfortunately, these rankings are missing the point. When these publications develop their rankings, they analyze curriculum, programs, faculty commentary, facilities and other info.
But all of these schools have comparable high-quality curricula, intelligent professors, and impressive facilities. When it comes to assessing the value of a business school, there's only one thing that really matters: The amount the school will help your future career.
Over the past month, we've conducted a survey to find out the true ranking of the top 50 business schools in the world.
Our survey looked at the value of the school's brand and the network of contacts you build while you're there.
We also looked at reputation and how other people perceive the quality of the school. We measured the "wow" factor of each school and the impact its name has on potential employers.
