Amazing how the US continues to dominate the b-school top 10...but for how long? Many schools are opening up satellite campuses overseas...could our role as thought-leader be undermined? Only time will tell. The full ranking is here: http://www.economist.com/whichmba/2010/free-ranking-tool
The University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business tops our ranking (which measures everything from the quality of the faculty to the students’ career prospects). Spurred by the dearth of jobs in finance, its careers advisers have been steering graduates into unfamiliar terrain, such as government and the non-profit world.
...The Economist finds that these are difficult times for business schools, especially European ones. MBAs who graduated in 2009 earned less than those who graduated the previous year. That had not happened for ages. Starting salaries of new MBAs from London Business School (LBS) dropped from $117,000 to $101,000. The number of LBS students who found work within three months of graduation fell from 91% to 81%.
