    A question regarding your reported number of MBA programs in the US. If there are around 4.000 different MBA programs offered by 454 institutions it would mean that on average each of this institutions have around 9 different MBA programs, which doesn’t sound realistic. Maybe I am not interpreting the use of “institution” in the right way. Would, for example, University of California count as one institution and then each of the programs offered by its various schools (Berkeley, Irvine, Los Angeles) count as different MBA programs?

    Could you please clarify on these figures?

    Thank you in advance!
