When candidates decide to apply for MBA to top MBA programs have a prominent position in their minds: Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, MIT, Kellogg, INSEAD, LBS. Since the MBA is a big investment and return on the investment many times means a top name MBA Business School. There are often important factors to consider such as the way of teaching, the courses offering, the clubs and the networking.
However, since the name weights heavily on the applicants’ decision, we will present today some facts about the way two big schools evaluate the applicants to craft their MBA class.
