Is anybody speculating about what's going to happen in the MBA rankings for 2014? FT, Businessweek, Economist, etc.?

I mainly only pay attention to the FT rankings. The only thing I can say for sure is that the top schools will remain the top schools. Maybe Stanford will switch places with Harvard or Wharton will switch places with LBS, but there won't be many substantial changes up at the top.

The Asian schools will probably continue to rise - will Ceibs break into the top ten? CUHK and HKU might see some nice gains.

UK schools will probably hold steady - especially in the top half of the ranking. But I'm pretty interested in the lower-tier UK schools, Bath, Strath, etc.

Maybe we'll see another German school in the top 100 (besides Mannheim)?

What about business schools in Asia? All the rankings look at Singapore and Hong Kong, but never anything is mentioned about the Philippines or Thailand, or Malaysia.

That's because schools in those countries don't have the same kind of international draw as schools in China/Singapore/Hong Kong. Give it a few years though with good economic growth, and maybe this will change. Sasin in Thailand, for one, seems to be trying to position itself to grow and attract more international attention, although I don't see this school making the rankings this year.

Oh well, Sasin didn't make the FT rankings this year... Maybe next year. Speaking of which, what happened to CUHK? It was in the top 30 last year, but isn't on the list this year.

Sasin is a nice MBA program, and if i am not wrong, several of the courses are tought by Kellog professors. The tuition of Sasin is probably the highest in Asia, I wonder if it can pay off in the Thai case

I read elsewhere that CUHK didn't take part in this year's ranking due to an undisclosed technicality. Not sure what this means, but it could be because they didn't get enough response to meet the required threshold.

Too bad for them though, the MBA scene in Hong Kong is very competitive, and it doesn't look good for them to not be ranked when HKUST and HKU are.

I was thinking that Cass and Cranfield would gain a few spots in the FT rankings, but both dropped! Also, I can't believe Manchester dropped as well...

The long term trend is that schools that place fewer students into developing countries will fall. The PPP calculations means that alumni in the developing world hugely push schools up. That's even clearer with the EMBA rankings, where almost all the top programmes now are joint programmes with heavy placement there.
