In the world of business schools, the pre-eminence of top American business schools continue as we approach 2016. In the latest international rankings by The Economist, no less than 14 of the top 20 full-time MBA B-schools hail from the United States. The top position is also held by an American Business School the Booth School of Business of the University of Chicago.
How Booth Dominates the Rankings
In the surveys conducted by The Economist this dominance by Booth is nothing new having topped the list 5 times within the period of the last 6 years. The rankings take into account both subjective marks by the students themselves as well as hard data.

But Corbyn is no fool. He fully realizes that the elite who attend private schools (accounting for only
seven percent of all school going children in the UK) are the ones who dominate the decision making
positions in corporate, media and governmental organizations alike. They will do their best to maintain
their privilege and exclusivity but Corbyn is up to the fight.
