The QS Global 200 Top Business Schools was just released.
This ranking is published by QS, a company based in th UK. Their methodology is based on recruiter feedback. They ask recruiters all over the world to state the schools where they have recruited, are recruiting or are planning to recruit. Recruiters that are focused on domestic recruitment (ie only in the country where the school is based) are not taken into account, which means that some very good local schools will not show up in the rankings.
