The S7 was formed in 2008 as a response to the M7 and does around 40 admissions events every year. Their place in the rankings, and their admissions and employment data make them world-class business schools. Today, though they are not part of the S7 network, schools like UCLA, Tuck and Tepper are considered to be at par.
