  1. Wonder what this article has relevance in NBW.
    Also an interesting take on MBA rankings (My college is in top 10 , so am not a disgruntled MBA passout):
    Met this Gentleman on a flight and while chatting proudly announced to him that I had been selected in a FT Top 10 MBA program. He smiled and mentioned that when he had passed out his MBA program – MIT Sloan – was ranked #1 in the world. He then went to his classmates and inquired How many had gotten a call from Harvard. 10% was what he found out who had left Harvard to join MIT Sloan. Ironically when he checked in Harvard, 80%+ had gotten Sloan but preferred Harvard.
    Moral of the story, Rankings don’t really matter. The end result – Jobs, Learning, Brand & Alumni Network does!!!!
    Finally for the curious few – Kindly check the parameters on how points are given – No. Of Women Students, No of International Students, blah, blah, blah – and take time to wonder whether these parameters are worth your time.
