I wanted to get your opinion on something. Do you think people from Harvard's MBA program mainly do well because they went to Harvard, or because the type of person who generally gets into HBS is intelligent, driven, etc? For all you students of economics out there, I'm talking about the signaling debate. If all the first year MBA students at HBS had to attend some school ranked 30 or so, and all the first year students at the other school had to attend HBS, do you think the results would be much different 5 or 10 years after graduation?
P.S. In case anyone is interested, I know there was a similar study for undergrad. They compared students who went to Harvard for undergrad, with people who got into Harvard but chose to attend another school. The findings were that the non-Harvard grads did as well as the Harvard grads a few years after graduation.
