Hi Duncun,

If you are using the ft ranking as the benchmark, then I agree that Aston is no longer as good as before... Moreover, it did not even appear on the top 100 ranking on Economist 2015, to my surprise!

Why Katz (UofPittsburgh) is not at all considered though it stands 35th in the Forbes list (US schools) and 97th in 2015 Global list of FT?

Very interesting!
I'm wondering.. I guess these numbers generally apply to full time MBA - do these numbers also apply to Executive MBA programs for the same school?

No, EMBA programs as a rule will generally have lower GMAT scores than their full-time counterparts at the same school. However, this will vary greatly depending on many factors. What schools are you looking at?

This post is very helpful thank you!!

I do have one question about this:

If you have less work experience, you'll generally be a more competitive candidate towards the bottom of the tier you are targetting.


Does the opposite apply? For instance I have 8 years of work experience and since most of these MBAs have average work experience of 4-6 years should I apply to a higher tier than normal?

No, because there is a sweet spot for experience. With too much experience you are harder to place.
