1) Academic reputation
2) Admission eligibility
3) Job placement rate
4) Recruiter feedback
6) Global reputation and influence
7) Annual tuition and fees
Data for these indicators was collected from publicly available sources, business school’s website, and our research. It measures the quality of education, job placements of students, and the recruiters feedback, without relying on university data submissions. Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate business schools on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”
