FT Global Rankings 2017 Predictions

Any thoughts? Insead might not be able to sustain its number 1 position due to fierce competition from Harvard or Stanford.

As always, ForEx movements will be the biggest driver of change. Euro-zone schools will edge down a little: http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=EUR&to=USD&view=1Y

I think FT uses PPP which doesn't change that much from one year to another.

I will start this September; so no idea about intensity, yet.

Job prospects are just fine and depend more on the individual than the school, I think.

Although I could imagine to stay in UK for a while, that's not a must; so Brexit doesn't concern me too much.

Sorry, I just realised that you are starting this year. I supposed it's good to keep an open mind and have some backup plan. Not that we can't try our best to achieve our goal but there are always uncontrollable factors which restrict us along the way.

Back to the ranking, I foresee UK schools such as LBS would be in the top 10, Said & Judge in top 20, MBS, imperial, Cass in top 40, Cranfield and Warwick in top 50.

In my opinion, Lancaster could be outplayed by the ranking and fall miserably after last years's success as history repeats itself. Cranfield had never fell out of 50 until last year so I suppose it will pick up in this year's result. Again, just my 2 cents.

The FT does use PPP but the historical data shows that employers don't. Firms with declining currencies do have less MBA hiring, and markets that are increasing in value have more.

I don't see Insead holding onto #1 again this year. Probably will be edged out by Harvard or Stanford.

I think some of the lower ranked UK schools will lose ground as well. I don't see Lancaster staying in the 30's - maybe it will drop 10 spots or more. Manchester might be insulated a bit more, but Cranfield and Durham will probably lose ground as well.

In the US, I see Darden as poised for a better position this year. Cornell too.

Ranking was just out. Insead is #1. Cambridge #5 in the world and ahead of LBS? Shocking! Left me wandering the credibility of FT MBA ranking.

I guess that shows the heavy influence of PPP salary figures on the ranking.

I wonder why RSM is ranked so high on international mobility when most people on this forum seem to think that the ability to speak dutch is necessary for a job in the Netherlands. Am I missing something here? They take a lot of Asian students, are they placing them all over Europe to achieve this ranking? I don't understand.

It feels a bit strange that Cambridge is now ranked higher than LBS. But given both schools' post-MBA salaries in past years, I guess a re-adjustment was necessary.

Spanish business schools seem to be doing well... IE is now a top 10 school, with IESE and ESADE showing good progression.

Stanford salaries are back up to where they were before the financial crisis - was $194k in the 2013 ranking, $185k last year, and $195k this year.

We lost a couple Canadian schools this year - McGill, UBC... but Australian schools are generally stronger than they were last year.
