Finally a ranking that matters...

SOURCE: Emerging

METHODOLOGY: Between May 18 and June 7 of 2012, more than 2,500 recruiters and 2,200 international chief executives and business managers were asked to select their top universities. The countries represented were Australia, Brazil, Britain, China, Germany, France, Italy, India, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.

Part one of the two-part survey asked more than 2,500 recruiters in 20 countries (including Britain, China, and the United States) to describe the qualities they find important in a new hire. The online survey included questions such as to what extent should a new hire be immediately effective and productive in the company, which foreign languages (other than English) are needed to succeed in a company, and which qualities are important for the long-term employability of a graduate. It also asked about "soft skills," such as adaptability, communications, and the ability to work in a team.

RESULTS: including only American schools...

  1. Harvard
  2. Yale
  3. Stanford
  4. MIT
  5. Columbia
  6. Princeton
  7. Boston University
  8. Caltech
  9. University of Chicago
    10, Brown
  10. UC Berkeley
  11. Duke
  12. NYU
  13. University of Pennsylvania
  14. Dartmouth
  15. UCLA
  16. Johns Hopkins
  17. Northwestern
  18. Georgetown
  19. University of Southern California
  20. Carnegie Mellon
  21. Boston College
  22. Cornell
  23. UNC
  24. UVA
  25. Michigan State
  26. Arizona State
  27. University of Michigan
  28. Purdue
  29. WUSTL
  30. Texas A&M
  31. BYU
  32. University of Washington
  33. Brandeis
  34. Case Western
  35. Ohio State
  36. UCSF
  37. UT Austin
  38. Wisconsin
  39. UCSD
  40. Emory
  41. Rice
  42. University of South Carolina
  43. Vanderbilt
  44. Rutgers
  45. Illinois
  46. Maryland
  47. Notre Dame
  48. Minnesota
  49. University of Pittsburgh

Monkeys, this is one of the most sensible rankings I've ever seen and I believe this list truly captures international business prestige. The reason BU, NYU, and ASU do so well is because they accept a very high percentage of international students so there's a high level of visibility for these schools abroad.

Sexy results. Guess Cornell offers too many sports scholarships to Canadians

Columbia, BU, brown, nyu, are way too high.

Nov 12, 2012

Pitt holding it down at #50 and yet nobody recruits here.

Nov 12, 2012

BU number 7? Yeah ok. One of the better rankings out there but there are a few head-scratchers.

Nov 12, 2012

MSU higher than UofM...I call some BS on this list...also BU, BC and UNC are all way too high.

UNC and BC are pretty solid schools who are ranked pretty close to where they are at here by USNWR as well. MSU doing better than UMich is a surprise but you have to consider that MSU dominates in the field of Supply Chain Management and graduates a lot more students than UMich period so it may have higher visibility.

Also MSU has the #1 nuclear physics grad program along with great turf grass, packaging and vet med programs among others. Not to say its better than Michigan because of this, but it's definitely got some niche programs that are world class. There's no doubt mich dominates in business, medicine and engineering (among others).

Given the international angle, I actually think that this ranking makes sense.

Nov 13, 2012

Makes sense, although there's a definite tilt towards larger schools.

Caltech is the noticeable outlier, for good reason. That school has only 2200 kids and it's ranked number 9. Those kids are absolutely brilliant.

From a Canadian perspective....

I understand how UofToronto (24) could be top among Canada but how is:

McGill, Montreal HEC (29), McMaster (30) >> Queens (56), Western/ Ivey (85), Waterloo (108)

It's just a ranking of comprehensive globally-recognized schools, has nothing to do with business programs.

Nov 13, 2012

Honestly speaking? This is a pretty crappy ranking.

Nov 12, 2012

25 sittin' on 25 mil

Gawdam. Don't care 'bout no rankings

Nov 13, 2012

oshit, im top 50 now. I would have never known.

Nov 13, 2012

I find it hard to believe that Peking University is ranked the top school in Asia coming in at 11, well ahead of Tsinghua at 84.

Nov 12, 2012

Why are oxbridge so high? They've been in decline since WWII. The average student at pretty much every ivy except maybe cornell and brown are of higher caliber than the average oxbridge student.

Nov 12, 2012

The point isn't the quality of the students but the perception of them in the job market. Oxbridge is a pretty incredible brand regardless of the average student's "caliber."

Nov 13, 2012

lol @ ohio state, texas a&m, MICHIGAN STATE ahead of Vanderbilt, Emory, Rice, Notre Dame? Michigan state accepts previous felons. probably by far the worst list I've ever seen. this is parody at best.
