Admissionado Ranking

Very High (2nd Tier)

Roughly-speaking, a 2nd Tier pull finds you in the 2nd half of the Top 15, Top 20: very much in the game with the boys and girls, but whereas the first, exclusive looks may go to that top slice, this bracket is no joke, and puts you in an advantageous position compared to the vast majority of all other MBAs on planet Earth.

Admissionado Grade


As far as true global reach goes for post-MBA employment, the "A-Range" schools may have greater reach. However, when it comes to local opportunities (city, state, country, region), many schools in this tier have just as much (and in some cases more) firepower than any school imaginable. So, geography post-MBA should be in the mix when eyeing schools in this pocket. You can easily excel in the same ways and to the same extent as another might with those "A-Range" names.
