London Business School Win the 2013 MBA Sailing League

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. Continue reading “London Business School Win the 2013 MBA Sailing League”

Insead hold onto top spot in the rankings

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 stay top of the rankings

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.
