FT business ranking : Data interpretation from stats available for Bschools
Hi @Arun /CV Team, I am working listing best school i can crack as well as afford the same time + alot of my personal parameters + getting picture which is closer to reality not just the fancy number. My question:
- How to interpret weighted salary / Salary today field ?
- There are many collage which have multiple MBA programs. Then how can we come to above figure
a. with all courses included (MBA + Executive MBA + Sr. Executive courses + Family Business etc) or b. Specific course which takes gmat /GRE/ scores This impact the stat in question 1 drastically. 3. Regarding Schools in UK ( LBS , Judge, etc) : Is there any way we identify how the placement panned out. I mean i am no entrepreneur and expect a job post mba but with change in political dynamics i need to understand the placement procedure and how long after collage we can work on the job prospects. http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-ranking-2017
You have asked it at the right place 🙂
#1) Is there any correct way to interpret this mumbo-jumbo about statistics?
Here is the deal: All of this data is very confusing especially if you consider that Indian salaries. So my recommendation is not to read too much into it.
#2) Should I believe FT Rankings?
No – they are crap IMO. Pick either of these:
#3) How do I figure out my chances of being placed in the geography post-MBA?
Firstly remember that as an international student your fate is very different. So you have 2 things to consider:
a) The local work permit issues. Best is to independently research for each geography.
b) How your industry processes visas. Tech is known to be more favorable – FMCG less favorable so that is another factor you need to consider.
The best is to connect with a second-year student OR a recent alum and ask them for their opinion.
