The CEOWORLD Magazine Business School Rankings For CEO And Entrepreneurs, 2015:

The CEOWORLD Magazine surveyed more than 198,600 individuals in an extensive poll, including 6,300 human resource directors from the world’s largest multinational companies and 64,200 students. The ratings are numerical scores given to the schools based on return on investment and recruiter feedback — measuring the quality of the school’s learning environment.

Ranking criteria include: the size of the program, teaching style, cost, career opportunities, participation in academic associations, peer assessments, international networks, student graduation rates, research reputation and opinions of students.

Note: The three main factors that contribute to rankings : the student survey is based on surveys of MBA graduates with 64,200 total responses (weighted at 35%), the corporate recruiters survey rank is based on surveys of 6,300 human resource directors (weighted at 45%), and the school’s experience  survey, a combination of surveys of school’s students, faculty and overall employment results that combined contribute an additional 20 percent.  All scores are out of 200.
