留学参考:Why U.S. News Whacked NYU Stern

 


 BY: JOHN A. BYRNE ON MARCH 16, 2016

 

 

Last week when New York University Stern School Dean Peter Henry was told his school would fall nine places to rank 20th in U.S. News’ forthcoming list, he had to be shocked. Ever since the magazine began ranking MBA programs in 1989, Stern had never ranked so low. Last year the school’s full-time MBA placed 11th. Its worst ranking ever was 14th. There was no obvious reason for that big a fall to 20th this year. After all, there was little change in the school’s year-over-year metrics used by U.S. News to rank the best full-time MBA programs.

Sure, Stern’s acceptance rate had inched higher to 20.0%, from 18.1% a year earlier. Some 89.0% of last year’s MBAs had jobs three months after graduation, down from 90.4% the previous year. But some of the school’s stats, including its employment rate at commencement, had actually improved, along with the starting pay last year’s graduates received.

Was it even remotely possible that Stern could plunge nine places to its lowest rank ever? Dean Henry says that when he heard the news, he was “surprised” in what has to be an understatement. We “looked at the data, and found that Stern’s scores were higher than a number of other schools with higher ranks. So we challenged their ranking of Stern,” he recounts.

OMISSION WAS ‘WHOLLY UNINTENTIONAL’ & ITS VALUE WAS NEARLY IDENTICAL TO LAST YEAR

The dean quickly discovered that his school had unintentionally omitted one data point out of more than 300 asked for by U.S. News. It was the number of incoming students who had taken the GMAT test. The magazine relies on this statistic in its ranking model to to determine the strength of a school’s entering class relative to other programs. The magazine has been burned in the past by a few schools, including Tulane University’s Freeman School, that sent in fraudulent information to be ranked higher. So it takes a tough line on both omissions and the submission of wrong data.

Yet, in this case, the school told U.S. News it was merely a simple mistake. “The data point has been provided by Stern in previous years,” Henry wrote in an email to students last night, “and its omission was wholly unintentional; its value was nearly identical to that we submitted last year. In lieu of the missing data point, U.S. News informed us that they used an ‘estimated’ number, though we have not been told what this estimate was, on what it was based, or how it was factored into the computation. Nor did U.S. News flag the missing data point in the final step of their data verification process, and unfortunately, Stern’s internal reviews did not pick up the omission, either.”

Instead of calling up Stern and asking for the missing piece of information, U.S. News—which is ranking tens of thousands of schools in business, law, medicine, engineering and education at the same time—chose to use its estimate which severely penalized Stern. When school officials tried to give U.S. News the previously omitted information, the magazine refused to re-run all its rankings calculations.

 

U.S. News Metrics For NYU Stern Fairly Stable Over Years

Stern Dean Peter says Stern's drop to 20th was "a surprise given the stability of Stern's performance over the years on the eight criteria used to determine the rankings." See below:

Year Rank Peer Poll Recruiter Poll GPA GMAT Accept Pay Jobs* Jobs**
2013 11 4.2 3.90 3.42 719 13.6% $128,888 80.7% 90.6%
2014 10 4.2 3.90 3.51 720 15.7% $133,919 79.5% 90.5%
2015 10 4.2 4.00 3.51 721 16.0% $131,975 77.8% 93.2%
2016 11 4.2 4.00 3.52 721 18.1% $135,933 74.9% 90.4%
2017 20 4.2 4.00 3.51 720 20.0% $137,534 78.8% 89.0%

Jobs* is the percentage of MBAs employed at graduation. Jobs** is the percentage of MBAs employed three months after graduation. Accept is the school's acceptance rate. Year is for the year chosen by U.S. News as its ranking year. The magazine says its 2016 ranking is a 2017 ranking to keep it less perishable.

‘U.S. NEWS WILL NOT RECALCULATE NYU’S RANKINGS BECAUSE OF NON-REPORTING’

With print deadlines passed and so many numbers to crunch, U.S. News took a hard line on the mistake. “U.S. News will not recalculate NYU’s rankings – or any other school’s rankings – because of non-reporting,” declares Robert Morse, the magazine’s long-time rankings guru, in explaining why NYU had fallen so far.

U.S. News depends on schools to provide accurate and complete data in response to our statistical surveys, and re-ranking a school due to an oversight on its end would set a precedent U.S. News does not support,” he tells Poets&Quants. “After the rankings were finalized, Stern recognized its error and provided U.S. News with the omitted data points. We have included the omitted data on Stern’s profile page on usnews.com so that students have access to this information.”

Henry, however, could not have been pleased. In his email to students, he noted that “this year’s ranking is all the more incomprehensible given that Stern clearly dominates the schools ranked 15-19 this year, outperforming each of them often by substantial margins on at least six of the eight criteria.” As an example, he compared the results of his school with UCLA’s Anderson School of Management (see below).

Henry says Stern takes full responsibility for its oversight. “Once Stern learned of the omission, we forwarded the missing data point to U.S. News and requested them to re-run their computations so that the rankings could better reflect reality,” he wrote. “U.S. News declined this request, even though we believe the ranking as published is anomalous and inconsistent with the reported inputs on the eight criteria.

‘STERN’S QUALITY IS NO DIFFERENT THIS WEEK THAN IT WAS LAST WEEK’

“Going forward, as we strive to improve the school’s actual performance on every front, we will also further tighten significantly the procedure for data submission so such lapses do not occur in the future.  Finally, let us remember that while rankings matter because they are an important reference for prospective students, the reality of Stern’s quality is no different this week than it was last week.”

Bottom line, says Henry: “You shouldn’t accept it (the ranking) at face value.”

That may be true, but for tens of thousands of readers, it may not make much of a difference.
