GWU business school ascends

George Washington University's business school jumped from 85th to 57th in this year's Financial Times Global MBA Rankings.

The newly released international rankings put three U.S. business schools among the top five:

1. London Business School
2. University of Pennsylvania: Wharton
3. Harvard Business School
4. Stanford Business School
5. Insead (France)

The Darden school at the University of Virginia ranks 30th on the list. Georgetown's McDonough school ranks 38th. The University of Maryland's Smith school ranks 43rd. All of those schools rank somewhat higher than GWU, but none has improved at the same rate.

As prestige ascends, so do costs. Higher education is becoming more and more difficult for the middle class to attain.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the entire sub-prime/CDO/MBS mess that nearly destroyed the world's financial system a creation of graduates of these fine institutions?

Just asking.

it is not surprising that the most expensive school in the country is climbing quickly up the rankings. however, this would have been a good opportunity to discuss how well smith school, a public school, is doing compared to other great mba programs at public schools such as uva or unc.
