“Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. And you can be that great generation”, proclaimed Nelson Mandela. Dr. Nagendra Chowdary, Dean, School of Management, Bennett University, explains, 'how can old business schools continue to be relevant?' At a recently organized convocation ceremony in a premier B-School campus, the young graduates were joyous. Their achievements in term of placements (read, median salary) showed no sign of jobless growth. Data showed every day less than 2% of Indians who applied for jobs got them.

Graduate business school
One year after dropping from top dog to bronze medalist, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business was named the best graduate business school in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings. U.S. News touted the school’s post-graduation employment rate — 83.6 percent of full-time program graduates are employed — and “the largest alumni network in the country” as two of the key reasons it ranked the University City institution ahead of its peers. President Donald Trump is one of those Wharton alumni, though he graduated from the school’s undergraduate program, not its graduate program. Trump received a degree in finance and graduated in 1968. Last year’s full-time enrollment at Wharton, the ranking says, was comprised of 1,742 students, 56.3 percent of whom (or roughly 981) were male and 43.7 percent of whom (or roughly 761) were female. According to U.S. News, another Wharton perk is the ability … [Read more...] about Wharton reclaims top business school title in U.S. News’ latest rankings

Kristine Phillips, The Washington Post Published 3:19 pm PDT, Saturday, August 11, 2018 The political kerfuffle around Melissa Howard began when a news site reported that the Florida state House hopeful is not a college graduate, as she claims to be. To prove the story wrong, Howard, R, reportedly flew to her proclaimed alma mater, Ohio's Miami University, to get a copy of her college transcript and posted a picture of her smiling next to her framed diploma.
