Do you think an MBA is only really worth the exit options immediately post mba? I just hear everyone obsessed with rankings but tbh in 10 years, outside say Harvard, they will have changed. My Alma mater undergrad was a top 20 school that has fallen for example. I chose it because it was the best in my local area but who cares given i don't live in that geographic local anymore. Other schools that I didn't even consider have risen up.

Alumni networks matter for the top schools (M7, some would say even as far down as T15). They can help you secure valuable jobs even beyond immediately post-mba. There isn’t too much change in rankings over time in M7 and T15.

C1 absolutely. Oxford is the best in economics in the World and social sciences overall. Business is built on those fields, so I def think those programs are built for success, despite only being created in the 90s.
