Going global [January 30]


The Financial Times has ranked UVA’s Darden School of Business 33rd in the world and 16th in the U.S. The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business was ranked No. 1—in the entire world.

Of course, this may not be news Darden wants to trumpet. Its world ranking in 2008 dropped from 26th in 2007. In 2006, Darden was ranked 24th. There isn’t an MBA amongst us here at C-VILLE, but we think that is what’s known as a “downward trend.”

On the upside, Forbes.com reported that Darden, with its boot-camp feel and general-management focus, is one of the most underrated business schools.
