They’ve been called beauty contests, brag-a-thons, and a head-scratching mess, but you’re still not likely to find a business school dean who says rankings are worthless. Which rankings? The ones bequeathed by publications like Bloomberg Businessweek and U.S. News & World Report. Here are some insights on weighing the numbers from two W. P. Carey deans.

Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business had the highest overall rank among the state’s universities, coming in at No. 35.
