Rankings Analysis: The MIT Sloan program is the best example of the silly unfairness of rankings. The school’s EMBA program fails to be ranked because it hasn’t been around long enough. So no organization has yet ranked it. Yet by any measure of quality, it would easily be among the top ten programs in the world.
