Rankings Still Captivate

Colleges and universities tend to have a love-hate relationship with rankings of all kinds. And yet they also tend to want to a) do well and b) stay abreast of how they and others are faring.

There are several prominent rankings and a handful of specialized rankings in use today. Though an imperfect comparison, often, MBA degree rankings serve as a proxy for executive education. In other cases, non-degree executive education is ranked separately.

Which institutions are “in the lead?” That depends upon how you frame the question.
