No doubt, this is a controversial topic.
Traditionally, HBS has had the highest yield (88-90% range) of all MBA programs, followed by Stanford (78-84% range).
(Yield of an incoming class of an MBA program is the percentage of accepted applicants who join the program, and it’s one of the best market-driven statistics that reflect reputation of a program.)
Then, how does such bold, cold statistic lie?
But it doesn’t reveal the entire picture, either.
