Rankings come in all shapes and sizes, but can any ranking truly capture social cachet? For a different perspective on the value of an MBA, we turn to the New York Times society pages, where the editors select and profile promising couples. Each month, we dedicate one B-School Chart of the Week to tallying how alumni from top-ranked business schools are advancing their social currency ranking.
March was a fairly quiet month for MBA weddings. Perhaps many couples are waiting to have a traditional June ceremony? Nevertheless, two Harvard Business School (HBS) alumni tied the knot in the third month of the year, as HBS graduate Adam Plotkin married Adam Abrahams, while fellow HBS alum Anna Stetsovskaya married John Hamilton, a JD/MBA dual-degree student at Stanford. Other March MBA brides and grooms included graduates from the New York University (NYU) Stern School of Business and the UCLA Anderson School of Management. Now that spring has (almost) sprung across the United States, warmer-weather MBA weddings are on the way!
