London Business School have won the MBA Sailing League for the second year in a row. Despite their effective 16th place at the Rolex MBA’s Cup, and their main rivals INSEAD coming home in 7th equal, the INSEAD team could not overcome the handicap of not having sailed at the Cranfield regatta in July. INSEAD come second equal for the second year in a row, with the Kellogg/WHU team their partners in second place. The top five are rounded out by Cranfield in 4th and Rotterdam in 5th, both there for the second year in succession.
INSEAD climb 2 places above Cranfield who didn’t compete in Italy. EFPL climb 8 places to 6th, Manchester 7 places to 7th, and Tuck 6 places to 8th equal. Meanwhile Warwick, AUEB, Bath and Henley drop out of the top 10.
LBS won the league by winning at the Global MBA Trophy in Athens, Greece and the Cranfield Regatta in the Solent, UK. They came second at the ABC regatta, in Marseille, France and third at the RSM regatta in Lelystad, Netherlands. More >
The team from EPFL, Lausanne won their second Rolex MBA Regatta in Santa Margharita Ligure, Italy. The EPFL team now have back- to- back successes, having been the champions of the same regatta in 2012.
The team from Manchester Business School came second, and the podium was rounded out with Tuck business school; Bocconi’s crew came in fourth.
EPFL won the Beneteau 36.7 fleet, then beat Tuck in the semi- finals, finally beating Manchester in the finals of the match racing. The Jeanneau Sunfast 37 fleet was won by Tuck. Bocconi came second in the 36.7s, Manchester 2nd in the Sunfasts. More >
Insead’s 6th place at the Cranfield Regatta was enough for them to hold onto the number 1 position in the MBA sailing rankings. They are three points ahead of London Business School, whose 3rd place on the Solent brings them above Bocconi into second. Warwick and Leeds round out the top five, climbing as MIP Milano and Manchester drop out.
The MBA Sailing Rankings are based on the past rolling 12 months of MBA sailing, so are currently made up of the 2011 Rolex MBA’s cup, the 2012 Global MBA Trophy, 2012 ABC and 2012 Cranfield regatta.
INSEAD’s third place at the Global MBA trophy in Piraeus consolidates their position at the top of the MBA Sailing rankings as we begin the 2012 season. Indeed, as they came 4th in 2011, it makes their score one point less than at the end of 2011.
Bocconi and LBS are lying second and third respectively with 22 and 23 points, while Manchester and Cranfield benefit from the smaller number of qualifying boats in Greece and move up to 4th and 6th respectively at the expense of MIP Milano and Warwick who drop to 5th and 7th respectively. Only the 6 boats in the “A” division at Athens could qualify for the trophy, and so only those boats competing in the A division could gain points for the league.
Other big movers are Wharton, Chicago and HEC/Trium who missed Athens this year and so drop 4, 10 and 7 places respectively.
