Most people return to business school for an M.B.A. degree to increase their marketability in a highly competitive business environment. How well they achieve their goal depends in large measure on how the business world views the schools they attended. For the first time ever, The Wall Street Journal, the world's most respected business publication, along with Harris Interactive, the organization that created the well-known Harris poll, tells you what corporate recruiters from a wide variety of fields think about the M.B.A. programs they know so intimately. Nearly two years in the making, this is the only major survey that focuses exclusively on the opinions of recruiters -- the buyers of M.B.A. talent. Twenty-seven variables for each school were evaluated, variables that drive a recruiter to hire a particular graduate, such as their company's long-term success with a school's M.B.A. graduates and the students' communication and interpersonal skills, analytical and problem-solving abilities and leadership potential. This groundbreaking volume used the evaluations of more than sixteen hundred recruiters, appraising twenty-seven variables for more than two hundred schools in order to arrive at statistically valid ratings for fifty U.S. and international M.B.A. programs, as well as recruiters' observations on thirty-five more business schools and brief profiles on an additional seventy schools. In addition to the overall rankings, The Wall Street Journal Guide to Business Schools ranks the best public and private schools, the top schools by region, the top large and small schools, the top schools on top attributes, schools that are "hidden gems" and business schools by industry. Also evaluated are schools' academic excellence, the collegiality (and competitiveness) of each school and the most important school attributes. The corporate recruiters even list their personal favorites...and go on the record with extremely candid observations about both the business schools and their graduates. The first guide to business schools published exclusively as an e-book, The Wall Street Journal Guide to Business Schools will prove to be an invaluable resource for prospective students, school faculty and administrators -- and recruiters themselves.

The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the future of the world economy has arrived, and it’s not self-driving cars, solar energy, or artificial intelligence. It’s called the blockchain. The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second genera­tion—powered by blockchain technology—is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolution­ary protocol that allows transactions to be simul­taneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it’s the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital cur­rencies, the underlying framework has the potential to go far beyond these and record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certifi­cates to insurance claims and even votes. Why should you care? Maybe you’re a music lover who wants artists to make a living off their art. Or a consumer who wants to know where that hamburger meat really came from. Perhaps you’re an immigrant who’s sick of paying big fees to send money home to loved ones. Or an entrepreneur looking for a new platform to build a business. And those examples are barely the tip of the ice­berg. This technology is public, encrypted, and readily available for anyone to use. It’s already seeing wide­spread adoption in a number of areas. For example, forty-two (and counting) of the world’s biggest finan­cial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Credit Suisse, have formed a consortium to investigate the blockchain for speedier and more secure transactions. As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored. Don Tapscott, the bestselling author of Wikinomics, and his son, blockchain expert Alex Tapscott, bring us a brilliantly researched, highly readable, and utterly foundational book about the future of the modern economy. Blockchain Revolution is the business leaders’ playbook for the next decade and beyond. From the Hardcover edition.
