Join us for an insightful August Collab led by  Dan LeClair, CEO of the Global Business School Network (GBSN), and special guest John Byrne, Chairman, CEO & Editor-in-Chief of C-Change Media Inc. In this engaging webinar, we will dive into the intriguing world of business school rankings and their implications for business schools on a global scale.

During the Collab, we will explore the significance, benefits, and shortcomings of various business school rankings, with a particular focus on those published by Poets and Quants. Drawing upon John’s extensive experience in the media industry and his role at Poets and Quants, we will gain valuable insights into the development, methodology, and impact of rankings.

This session will provide GBSN members with a unique opportunity to better understand the complexities and nuances surrounding international business school rankings. Attendees will gain a comprehensive perspective on the influence of rankings on reputation, student recruitment, and partnerships, as well as their broader implications for the business school landscape.

Members will have the opportunity to engage in a thought-provoking discussion and ask question like: 

  • What strategies can business schools employ to leverage rankings effectively and enhance their reputation and student recruitment efforts?
  • Business school rankings often rely on specific criteria and methodologies to assess institutional performance. What are the potential limitations or shortcomings of these rankings, and how do they impact the overall evaluation of business schools?
