Singapore University Ranking – NUS NTU SMU : )

Last week the first international ranking of B-school came out: London’s Financial Times’ ranking of full-time MBA programs, based on the alumni cohort which graduated 3+ years ago. We were ranked 81 (up from 92 last year), but NTU was ranked 67 (unranked last year), a full 14 places ahead of us!
It’s easy to say that this is just a blip, that we did better than NTU in 4 rankings and only worse in 1 ranking for the whole of last year, that rankings are only rough indications, that rankings are not important, that rankings depend too much on self-reporting, and that there was much clustering around the range where we and NTU found our ranks. But it really hurts. Where had we gone soft? Just look at the data:
