Reputation-wise though, I think most Americans have only heard of London and Oxford. But then, business is mainly a who-you-know-not-what-you-know world.

Dont see why anyone would wanna specially go to a business school for undergraduate studies. The point of a business school is that it offers Master of Business Administration.

Exactly, having said that Business schools do teach some management/finance modules at undergrad. I know that if I end up at Leeds and take finance electives it will be through thier Business School.

But generally wait till your MBAs guys

Oh right - for undergrad the usual elite are probably the best. 'Business Schools' usually infers postgrad i.e. MBA level studies for which only LBS is anywhere near the level of the North American elite.

Fair enough, LBS is the main one although I would have though Said, Judge, Warwick and maybe Manc or even Cranfield would be up there.

American MBAs are 2 years and doing them part time would be much more of a pain than here. Having said that I would love to go to Columbia or NYU and take one.

LBS and INSEAD of France are usually viewed as the best in the world when the US schools are excluded but even they are quite a bit behind the best found in the states.

This link is makes a very good case for Warwick's Business School being on eof the best in the country/europe, up there with the best in the world.

http://www.wbs.ac.uk/about/accreditation/rankings.cfm

The WBS Doctoral Programme is currently rated the best in Europe by The Financial Times.

The Financial Times has ranked The Warwick MBA in Europe's top 15 full-time MBAs for five consecutive years.

Which MBA ranks The Warwick MBA 30th in the world, a rise of 20 places.

In 2004, The Warwick MBA executive study was ranked 18th in the world by The FT, an rise of 17 places from 2003.

In 2003, The Guardian ranked WBS in the top three United Kingdom universities for business and management. Their survey of top employers rated our graduates the most employable in the UK.

For nine consecutive years, The Times Good University Guide ranked WBS in the top three United Kingdom universities for teaching business and management.

WBS was top-rated as 'excellent' in its most recent teaching quality assessment, managed by The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

London School of Economics, Oxbridge, Warwick but DO NOT FORGET Cass, Aston or Lancaster. Alongside with French business schools such as HEC, ESSEC or INSEAD which are well known too, and a one in Milan I don't remember the name. Then if you want a well known school you can also cross the Ocean and go to UPenn (Wharton), Stanford, Harvard or Columbia... Or even Singapore much farer
