Well I think what @Tacheman said made load of sense. “Best” is pretty subjective here, but I take it to mean career wise!
If I get to choose and have the funds, I’d love to go to either Oxford or Cambridge. Simply because it looks so pretty, aside from being known worldwide. Passing the interview is another thing! I heard what you learn there in terms of syllabus is pretty different or more intense than what other universities teach though…
MBA, well if I choose to do it, it has to be in the US, top few Ivy league ones. Harvard would be nice, purely due to brand name. I haven’t looked into course content etc, but would imagine they are pretty similar across the top ones
I don’t think rankings and so on matter too much to be honest. When an employer looks at a CV all that matters as far as the choice of university is concerned seems to be whether they’ve heard of it, or whether they think it’s a good university.
Of which tables have some but very little influence on in my experience. Ivy Leagues, Oxbridge and other elite universities that you’d recognize instantly would be good ones to go to for undergraduate studies. Assuming your goal is ‘to get a good job’ rather than ‘to get a good experience’ or ‘get a good education’, which are entirely different endeavors.
