Whether you’re looking to keep track of current affairs, entertaining commentary on sports or news, or just to stare at adorable photos of animals, Twitter has it all.
It’s also the place to keep up with the best business news—all the most respected business schools are on the platform, giving you the low-down on new research, alumni news, and the latest school updates.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a list of the top 20 most-followed schools on Twitter is a very American affair. Though a few European schools still sneak into the top 20, it reads almost identically to an academic ranking, so no prizes for guessing who makes the top five!
Without further ado, here are the most-followed business schools on Twitter, and why you should be following them.
