Undergraduate Business Schools in USA

Analyses of the Best Undergraduate (US-based) Business Schools of 2013

1. Ohio has the highest number of schools represented in this ranking.
2. There are few states, which are not represented in the ranking.

Distribution of Index Numbers by State

Remember, a school with a higher index number was better ranked. Here, we look at how index numbers were distributed across different states. To do this, we use boxplots, which show the minimum, maximum, 25th percentile, 50th percentile (median), and the 75th percentile of the distribution. The blue dots in the middle of the box are the mean index scores.Observations
1. Average scores are increasing from Vermont to Indiana.
2. Spread of the distribution (to some extent, measured by how long each box is) appears to vary across different states (for states with only one school, it is just a single point, but for states with multiple schools, the spread indicates the higher variance in the index scores across schools in that state.

Distribution of Index Numbers by Type of School, Teaching Quality Grade, Facilities and Services Grade, and Job Placement Grade

1. As one should expect, job placement grade and teaching quality grade matter. Facilities and services grade also has an effect.
2. Private schools appear to have a higher index number than public schools.

Relationships between Different Ranks, Index Numbers, a whole host of other variables

Here, we will look at a correlation analysis. (I've clubbed rank-ordered variables with ratio-scaled ones, but come on.) Below, is a graph with correlation coefficients color coded based on their value. Positive coefficients have been coded in blue and negative ones in red. Intensity of colors indicate the value.
1. 2013 Rank is, as expected, positively correlated with how schools are ranked by students and employers (not too dark a blue, is it?), MBA feeder school and Academic quality rank
2. 2013 Rank is perfectly negatively related to Index Number (hence the, because of the way it is computed).
3. Index Number is marginally positively correlated with Annual Tuition (not a good thing, is it?), but has a positive relationship with median starting salary of students. The latter relationship is a good thing.
4. Index number is negatively related to student faculty ratio, which is also a good thing, right? How does this play into the MOOCs thing?
5. And yes, the average SAT scores are strongly related to the index number.

Schools positioned on any set of two variables

Now, this gets interesting. Since there are many combinations possible and everyone has their own pet set of issues, the following interactive chart will let you play around until . forever, if you are really ticked about these issues.
This chart can be played around with in the following ways.
1. The two small tabs on the top right show either bubble charts or bar graphs, depending on what's selected.
2. The horizontal and vertical axes can be changed to other variables by clicking at existing axis labels (the arrow mark)
3. You can hover over the dots to know the school and value of the variables being examined.
4. Color is used to identify whether a school is a public school (Green) or a private one (Blue).
5. Size of dot is based on the index number- LARGER size is a better ranked school with a higher index number.

Observations: I will let you make them. Have fun.

Good combo

by tlbrink

Computer science, Japanese, and Finance sound like a great combination for a future career in international finance.
Finance is a good graduate degree when it is built upon an undergraduate foundation such as mathematics, economics, or accounting. Your background in computers could help you develop computer models of portfolios.
I don't know how many U.S. business schools have a Japanese language component. You might have to pick that up somewhere else (e.g., in another department of the university). For example, I am presently with the University of Redlands, here in southern California
