Let’s Exchange Heated Words Over: Business School Rankings

Once again, as it does every year, US News has released its ranking of the best, not bad, and okay business schools. As this is the sort of thing that inspires unbridled rage over perceived slights like finding out your alma mater dropped one spot or having to suffer the indignity of an inferior institution being too close on the list, and many of your are plain itching to get into a fight, everyone should feel free to do it in this controlled space.

If you're having trouble working yourself up into a lather but don't want to be left out of the fun, perhaps consider how it must feel for Wharton to finally have cracked the number one slot only to find out that it's being split three ways not just with Harvard but with a school that will let anyone in.
