A Jesuit Ranking System

If Jesuit business schools had a ranking system of their own, it might look something like this.

The Aspen Institute's "Beyond Grey Pinstripes" rates business schools across the world based on how they integrate social issues into their MBA curriculums.

"These schools are preparing students for the reality of tomorrow's markets by equipping them with the social, environmental, ethical and economic perspectives required for business success," the program's overview explains.

That's debatable. Although some of the top schools in the far-more significant BusinessWeek and U.S. News rankings also score well here, the list doesn't do a convincing job of creating an alternative universe.

Is York University in Toronto really the world's No.1 business school? That finding no doubt would come as a surprise to the corporate recruiters who "vote" on that issue with the salaries they offer to grads.

In Chicago, Loyola University's Graduate School of Business ranks No. 22, ahead of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management at No. 54.
