Description

For years, the business school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City strove for recognition as it sought to join the nation's elite business schools. In 2011, UMKC's Henry W. Bloch School of Management seemed to have made that leap when it vaulted ahead of Harvard, MIT and others in the rankings for innovation management research. However, our stories showed how that No. 1 ranking and top rankings by the Princeton Review were achieved with the help of exaggerations, misstatements, selective science and, in the case of the No. 1 ranking, the university's failure to disclose a close relationship between the school's faculty and the authors of the study that ranked UMKC above others. Independent experts told us that the study appeared to have been constructed in such a way as to make UMKC come out on top.
