List and Ranking of Ivy League Schools in USA

In the previous article, Will a Business Degree – MBA be right for you?, it’s true that to get more money, having an MBA degree from top schools will help you get there.

Also, an MBA from Ivy league schools adds more value to the degree.

The term “Ivy League” represents group of 8 schools which are know for academic excellence, very selective in admissions, and  reputation. Attending Ivy League schools means prestige.

It opens up lots of doors filled with opportunities. Getting an MBA from an Ivy League School is already very prestigious in itself.

Only 6 among Ivy League Schools offer MBA programs.

Two Ivy League universities, Brown University and Princeton University, do not have business schools.

Now you can decide where to apply. I’m going to write more about business schools, GMAT, and MBA in the coming weeks.

So far, most of the articles I’ve written were about master’s degrees and general admissions.
