B-Schooled Podcast Episode #90: Do MBA Rankings Matter? Part 1 of 2

It’s hard not to pay attention to MBA rankings when you’re in the midst of applying. But what do these rankings actually signify, and how important are they in the whole scheme of things? How much, if at all, should you base where you apply on how a school is ranked in various publications?

Over this and next week’s episodes, we’ll discuss how the Stacy Blackman Consulting team advises clients to consider rankings, what we think the biggest differences are between the M7 and other programs, and what else we believe should go into decisions about which programs to pursue.
