Ahead of Tulane (yea) and behind UTD and TCU (boo). As always, Emory runs with the elite group. Reading up on the history of Emory and SMU, the methodists opted to make Emory a prestigious institution and to give SMU a football team. I wish I could find that old article.

Concerning that we are behind UTD

Huge gap between #1 Stanford and #2 Wharton.

UTD (670) has a higher average GMAT than both SMU (650) and TCU (620). That's curious. It's obviously a lot less expensive. Is their FT program similarly sized to SMU? TCU is about half the size of SMU.

The component rankings are interesting as well. SMU has the highest compensation value of these three schools (66 vs. 60 at TCU and 55 at UTD) but it's network and "learning" scores are lower. ??

Didn't Emory make its fortune thanks to Coca-Cola stock?

Emory is awash in soda money. Candler and Woodruff families. Also North Georgia Conference of UMC

This is not the ranking that anyone pays attention to - its full of subjective stuff and "student feedback".

I really view NY, LA, Chicago and Dallas as the Top Financial Centers in the US, maybe Boston and Philadelphia make that list as well.

Realize its just one ranking, but we have to do better than this.

That's not anymore subjective than the U.S. News's rankings that are calculated based on feedback from high school counselors and the peer assessment.

Having worked in NY, it seemed to me that Chicago, Boston, LA and San Fran were just a step down. Atlanta, Dallas, Charlotte, Houston seemed next...at least for banking. Philly is decent as well. PHX and Denver next?

Isn't Business Week the ranking where Cox was ranked in the Top 10-15 at one point? I thought the school would generate some momentum off that ranking. Having recruited a lot at Cox, the cream of the crop in the FT program were as good as other Top 20 schools. It just seemed like you needed to get the top ones on big scholarships. It started that way at Fuqua too (about 20-25 years ago) but they built it out and created a juggernaut. Niemi was excellent at generating revenue and creating programs but I didn't think he did much with the grad school quality.

This is a ranking for masters programs only. My school is #8 and we don't even have an undergrad business major.

I think for your list is pretty accurate for Banking, but for Financial, Dallas moves up in importance and is IMO a Top 6.
