schema:description""Crainer and Dearlove conducted extensive research and interviewed hundreds of administrators and faculty members to find out if business schools deliver on their promises and discern what their futures may hold. Their page-turning examination of the B-school phenomenon contains provocative stories and startling facts about the incredible speaking and consulting fees charged by B-school stars. They delve into the power networks that link alumni, show how academic affiliations affect the way top CEOs do their jobs, and reveal how Business Week and other media rankings drive business school curricula."--Jacket."@en
