This article makes me suspect of the U's MBA billboard heading north out of SLC on old route 89......... If they are both in the top ten and one is actually 35th while the advertising one is 84th..... Seems the billboard should read...... Two are closer than you think with one being not who you'd like it to be coming in higher.....

Jake2010,

You misunderstand. The 6th and 10th ranking the two schools received are the popularity ranking, meaning ranking for what percentage of students who get accepted actually enroll. The second ranking (the 35th and 84th) is ranking how good the schools are. They are separate. So, the quality of the schools are quite a bit different, but the popularity is pretty close.

Utah's Eccles Business School flunks on the number factor for success in business, Credibility! Given the fact that they continue to be not ranked at all by Business Week Bloomberg where BYU's Business School ranks 31st. Also, in US News BYU ranks 27th and Utah's Eccles school is 63rd. How does the Eccles School put up bill boards and run ads on the radio touting it as the top business school in the state? There might be some ranking report no one pays attention to that puts Eccles higher, like the Utah Alumni Journal. This is Straight up propaganda. If you want to move up the ranks in the business school wars, try adding credibility to your programs character. Propaganda didn't work for the Soviets and it won't confuse savvy business school candidates. After all a key component in rankings is on the quality of the enrollment and how successful the alumni are. Easily duped candidates are not going to improve your ranking Eccles. Go back to business 101 - Credibility especially on Bill Boards and advertising campaigns.
