Inside Higher Ed, one of the leading voices on matters related to the higher education space, recently turned to Veritas Prep for insights on the competition among business schools in trying to outshine one another in the rankings. Chad Troutwine and I recently were in Washington, D.C., and we had a chance to sit down with Inside Higher Ed‘s Jack Stripling to discuss trends affecting the world’s top MBA programs.
Stripling’s article (“A Farewell to Arms Races?”) investigates what drives schools to roll out new academic programs, enhance their facilities, or make other significant changes. While there seemed to be a more blatant trend of schools “keeping up with the Joneses” in the 80′s and 90′s, many top schools seem to have taken a step back and are now making more deliberate changes that are in line with their core missions.
But the buzzwords of the day (be it ethics a few years ago or global business today) still seem to drive some of today’s changes at top MBA programs, which is what Chad and I discussed with Jack.
Take a look… Inside Higher Ed is a great way to stay on top of these trends if you’re considering applying to any graduate program.
