MBA students respond to KU School of Business differential tuition audit

To clarify, I'm talking about the addition of once part time faculty that have been added to the full time staff. I can personally think of 3 professors who fit this bill.

A key factor that has been ignored around the sinking rankings is that rankings are not absolute, but relative measures. Sure, the KUSB ranking fell while the School of Business spent $32+ million to improve it. But this $32M is only relevant in the context of how much other schools have spent. If leading schools have outpaced KU in spending, then this fall in ranking shouldn’t be a surprise. Considering the lackluster effort displayed in the KU-MU comparison, it’s probably safe to assume this analysis hasn’t been completed.

As a 2010 graduate of the MBA program, I too was concerned about where my differential tuition dollars were going and thought that the students were right to question the decision to disband the oversight committee. However, I wholeheartedly disagree with any notion that KU is providing a subpar business education or that I somehow did not get my money's worth.

Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!

Thanks for clearing up the numbers, Jack! One would have thought that a group of MBA students would not have been so careless in their comparison in the first place.

Would I be correct in assuming that the additional part time faculty is comprised professionals and practitioners that have experience in their respective fields? Is there anybody here that thinks this is a BAD thing? Business is an applied field, after all.
