There was an interesting study done on the Top 100 MBA programs (according to Financial Times’ rankings), that looked at the academic research records of the deans. And it found an interesting, though perhaps not ridiculously unbelievable, correlation: the more academically prominent a dean, the higher the school’s ranking! It’s pretty interesting, though something that seems to make sense when you think about it. Still, the article is worth the read.
