The author comments on the article "The Rain Man Cometh-Again," by Robert Zemsky in the February 2008 issue of "Academy of Management Perspectives." She notes that in the article, which focused on ranking for colleges, Zemsky focused on undergraduate programs rather than master of business administration (MBA) programs and suggests that though academic quality should be the most important criterion in the rankings, it cannot be measured accurately. She comments that students' opinions of academic quality may be a way to measure academic quality. She suggests business schools can choose a ranking system that fits their needs.
