The opinion of a business leader

"It is a tool that is far too simplistic and does not reflect the complexity and diversity of our activities. But the general public, I understand, wants synthetic, easy-to-use indicators. Rankings are a necessary evil. But their reliability is very... average. What bothers me a lot is that rankings tend to erase differences. They push schools to copy each other. They also maintain a form of self-reproduction.
