How about Germany? So who is to decide which are the best and who are the best? Does a school that value adds a student most be disregarded as a fine school?

That also means you take in any brilliant minds without a preconditioned set of standards that blocks anyone from a chance to pursue their studies. Or chuck away schools that don't resemble a certain culture and style. The ranking seem to be stuck in a common style.

>> I would like to congratulate the design schools who made it into Business Insider¡¯s ranking of the World¡¯s 25 Best Design Schools which were announced on 23 November. Twenty two of the schools were from the USA and 3 were European (RCA, Aalto, Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design).
>>
>> I have genuine respect for many of the schools listed in the top 25 but  must confess that, despite what I consider to be a global perspective on design teaching/reseach, there were a  few that I had never heard of. 
>>
>> Members of the List might be interested in the methodology used for the survey which, from details available on the launch page (http://www.businessinsider.com/vote-now-help-us-choose-the-worlds-best-design-school-2012-8) appears to have:
>>
>> - Canvassed (approach unspecified) a number (not quantified) of top venture capitalists, designers and professionals   (names unspecified) to assemble a preliminary list
>>
>> - Had no restrictions/control on who could participate in the survey
>>
>> - Allowed respondents to add to the list of design schools
>>
>> - Required respondents to have been a reader of the US-based/centric Business Insight or have been directed to the survey that was launched on 6 September 2012
>>
>> - Required respondents to have completed an on-line questionnaire
>>
>> - Require respondents to rank the schools as ¡°somewhat valuable, valuable, or extremely valuable?¡± in helping them in their future career
>>
>> - Had a statistically significant sample size of 633 respondents 
>>
>> The ranking can be found at http://www.businessinsider.com/the-worlds-25-best-design-schools-2012-11?op=1
>>
>> When I read the results, the first thought that came to my mind was a parallel association with the ironically and optimistically titled World Series Baseball.
