MBA Programs: Teaching You to Scam Monies and Look Smoking Hot in a Pencil Skirt Since the Dawn of Humanity

Our lives wouldn’t be complete without a yearly dose of rankings fever. The Economist released their (completely irrelevant, unnecessarily reductionist, totally and without a doubt worthless) rankings of the best full-time MBA programs in the world [1] early this week. Naturally, Haas made the list. The surprise is that someone beat the bigwigs to the punch: Schools in both Switzerland and Spain ranked higher than the usual US titans. Crazy business people! Well, Swiss craziness, which is considerably less crazy than actual craziness.

List of the programs after the jump.

6. California at Berkeley, University of–Haas School of Business
7. Cambridge, University of – Judge Business School

10. IE Business School

IMD reports that their students earn a jaw-dropping $130,000 per year after graduation, compared with an average pre-MBA salary of $79,000. But the article also warns that with the economy tanking and Wall Street firms laying off employees by the droves, no one knows how much economic security a degree from one of these schools will guarantee you, if any at all. Uh oh. To the box-mobile, Batman!
