    If you're going to fork over thousands of dollars for business school, it better be worth your time and money.

    Online grad school guide GraduatePrograms.com surveyed over 10,000 current and former business school students about their programs to find places where students felt they earned the best education for the price — schools where students were satisfied with their program, and would choose it again.

    Students ranked their schools in several categories — including value, financial aid, and quality of education — on a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being a perfect score. The scores for each school were averaged together by category, then ranked accordingly.

    Students say these business schools offer the best value:

    Bouchon Bistro, Yountville CA

    California is known for many things —sunshine, surfing, startups, and food.

    We recently released our annual list of the best restaurants in America, an aggregation of five of the most prestigious food awards and rankings in the country (you can read more about our methodology here).

    We pulled the California-based restaurants from our list and re-ranked them here.

    8. The Bazaar – Beverly Hills

    Chef: José Andrés

    From the flamboyant shows to the iconic world landmarks replicated along the Strip, everything about Las Vegas is over the top — including the food.

    And since Wall Street is heading there this week for the hedge fund blow out of the year, you can bet they'll take full advantage of that.

    We found the six most baller restaurants in Sin City, decked out in $50 truffle shavings and imported Maine lobster tails, based on our list of the 44 best restaurants in America

    6. Michael's Gourmet Room

    Michael's Gourmet Room at the South Point Casino, Las Vegas

    9777 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    Michael's Gourmet Room at South Point Casino opened in 1982, and is one of the restaurants that turned Las Vegas into a fine dining hot spot. Chef Fred Bilak crafts a menu that mixes surf and turf options, from the decadent broiled Maine lobster (for $120) to the rack of lamb for two (for $175).

    5. é by José Andrés

    é by José Andrés, Las Vegas

    3708 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    The simply named é by José Andrés is one of the Spanish gems under the umbrella of celebrity restaurateur José Andrés. Found inside the glamorous Cosmopolitan hotel, é seduces diners with a tantalizing 15-course tasting menu that heavily features foie gras and truffle. Expect to spend nearly $200 a person on the meal — not including drinks.

    4. Jaleo

    Jaleo Las Vegas, José Andrés

    3708 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    Jaleo is another José Andrés restaurant, and can also be found inside the Cosmopolitan. The crown jewel of Jaleo is the open-fire wood grill where head chef Luis Montesinos whips up paella the traditional Spanish way. Order a la carte, or choose one of two tasting menus: the Jaleo experience, for $55 per person, or José's way, an $85-per-person tapas love affair.

    3. Restaurant Guy Savoy

    Restaurant Guy Savoy, Las Vegas, desserts

    3570 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    The Caesar's Palace restaurant, which bears the name of French chef Guy Savoy, features many of the same dishes (expertly prepared by executive chef Mathieu Chartron) from Savoy's Paris location. Restaurant Guy Savoy is also the only restaurant in the US with a Krug chef's table, where guests at the six-seat table enjoy a Champagne-paired tasting menu with a view of the kitchen. Prix fixe menus start at about $250 a person.

    2. Joël Robuchon

    joel robuchon las vegas

    3799 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    Joël Robuchon's eponymous restaurant — and the only one in the US — features the executive chef Claude Le Tohic's finest specialties. Whatever you do, don't miss the truffled langoustine ravioli with chopped cabbage, or the farm chicken and foie gras. The meal may cost you upwards of $227 a head, but it's worth every cent.

    1. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés

    BazaarMeat

    2535 South Las Vegas Blvd.

    What's more baller than a restaurant with "meat" in the name? Chef de cuisine David Thomas prepares the meat-centric menu tapas-style, ranging from the cured to the carpaccio to the tartare. Bazaar Meat, which is tucked inside the SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, also offers an extensive raw bar and even "caviar flights." Dishes range in price from $9 to $70.

    Potato Champion

    From thick-cut steak fries to crispy shoestrings and poutine doused in gravy and cheese, fries come in thousands of mouthwatering varieties.

    No longer just a side dish, great fries deserve recognition in their own right. So we consulted expert reviews and local recommendations to find the true standouts from every state.

    Did we get your state right? Let us know in the comments.

    ALABAMA: Despite the upscale vibe of this Birmingham brasserie, Chez Fonfon's classic French fries are a hard menu item to beat. But here's the catch: You have to order a croque or hamburger to get them, as they aren't offered as a standalone side.

    Chez Fonfon



    ALASKA: What's the perfect complement for one of International House of Hotdogs' gourmet dogs? Cilantro fries, of course. This Anchorage favorite not only serves the best hot dogs in town, but crispy, flavorful fries to match.

    International House of Hotdogs



    ARIZONA: You'll feel like a kid again at Zinburger, where you're encouraged to indulge in grown-up versions of childhood favorites like burgers, shakes and, of course, fries, including truffle, zucchini, and sweet potato varieties. Originally opened in Phoenix, there are now locations across Arizona.

    serena williamsSome of these athletes are right in their primes, some have a long track record of sustained success, and some are athletes just beginning their dominance.

    We recently ranked the most dominant athletes in sports in general, but we also chose the most dominant in each sport individually.

    From the NFL and NBA to soccer, tennis, golf, track and field, and more, we selected the 31 athletes who stake a claim as the best in the world at what they do.

    Men's soccer: Cristiano Ronaldo

    Real Madrid forward

    Age: 30

    Ronaldo took home the Ballon D'or in 2014 and carried Portugal to the World Cup despite being knocked out in the first round. He has 18 goals in 2015 and 50 goals in 47 games for the 2014-15 season.



    Women's soccer: Nadine Kessler

    German national team midfielder

    Age: 27

    Kessler won 2014 FIFA's women's player of the year and was leading a German team that's one of the favorites going into the 2015 Women's World Cup. In October she hurt her knee and will now miss the World Cup.



    Men's tennis: Novak Djokovic

    Serbian tennis player

    Age: 27

    Djokovic is the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world, and seems best poised to dominate in the near future. He's the first player to win the year's first three Masters 1000 tournaments — the biggest outside the Grand Slams — and has a 5,000-point lead over Roger Federer for the No. 1 rank.

    giannis Antetokounmpo

    Some of these phenoms are already on our list of the 50 most dominant athletes alive.

    Others, if everything works out, could be in the next few years.

    While sports history is of full of examples of athletes that fail to live up to the hype, there are also stars like LeBron James, Tiger Woods, and the Williams sisters who actually met their astronomical expectations.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks player (age 20)

    The so-called "Greek Freak" was better in 2014-15 than anyone in the NBA expected. He has the height of a center, the skills of a guard, and an unreal 7'4" wingspan.

    His potential is off the charts. He has been compared to everyone from Kevin Durant to Kevin Garnett. He has more raw physical talent than anyone else his age, and if he continues to develop, he could rule the NBA with Anthony Davis once the LeBron era comes to an end.



    Martin Odegaard, Real Madrid player (age 16)

    Odegaard, a Norwegian prodigy who burst onto the scene at age 15, had every big team in Europe clamoring for his services in January of 2015.

    Soccer is full of examples of young players who fail to live up to the hype. Will Odegaard be different?

    It's promising that he started Norway's most recent European Championship qualifier, and he bypassed the typically club progression and jumped straight to Madrid.



    Simone Biles, US gymnast (age 18)

    If there's one person you'd bet on being a star at the 2016 Rio Olympics, it's Biles.

    Biles has been the most dominant force in women's gymnastics in the last two years. She won four golds at the last World Championships and the gold in the all-around competition in both 2013 and 2014. She's better than breakout star Gabby Douglas was when going into the London Olympics, and has a chance to take home a boatload of medals.

    Karren Brady

    Karren Brady is the British multimillionaire known as the "First Lady of Football," after a three-decade career in the industry.

    She ditched her formal education at the age of 18 and quickly rose up in the world of advertising and sport, to become one of the few — and, therefore, also prominent — women in football.

    She became a director of a major publishing company, Sport Newspapers Ltd., at 20, and a managing director of Birmingham City Football Club before she hit 30. She made an estimated £82 million ($125 million) by the time she turned 40.

    After overcoming a potentially fatal cerebral aneurysm and a police arrest over allegations of corruption in English football, she was awarded a CBE for services to Women in Business and Entrepreneurship. 

    By the end of last year, she was granted the title Baroness Brady of Knightsbridge.

    Karren Rita Brady was born on April 4, 1969, in Edmonton, London. Her family house was near to the Tottenham Hotspur football ground - White Hart Lane.



    Her father Terry Brady made an undisclosed fortune in printing and property development while her mother was a stay-at-home wife. Brady has an older brother, Darren.



    Until 11 years old, she attended Salcombe Preparatory School in Southgate.

    AbbVie employees running

    We all want to feel good about what we do. And some companies do a much better job of offering employees the opportunity to engage in meaningful work than others.

    To find which ones really stand out, we looked at Business Insider's latest list of the 50 best companies to work for in America. Illinois-based biopharmaceutical company AbbVie topped the list of most meaningful companies to work for, with 92% of its employees saying they find their work to be meaningful.

    The list is based on exclusive data from employer-information website PayScale, which surveyed employees in the US who work at companies that appeared on the 2014 Fortune 500 list.

    PayScale calculated scores for each company using six criteria: high job satisfaction, low job stress, ability to telecommute, high job meaning, experienced median pay/total cash compensation, and salary delta. (Read the full methodology here.)

    Here are the 30 most meaningful companies to work for in America:

    bourbon

    As of the end of 2014, whiskey — including scotch, rye and, yes, bourbon — was set to overtake vodka as the No. 1 spirit of choice in the US. So if you're a bourbon novice, now's a good time to get to know America's new favorite liquor.

    The experts over at FindTheBest determined the best bottles of bourbon that money can buy. They looked at recent expert scores and spirits competition judgings to come up with their Smart Rating scale. We used price to break ties, with a cheaper bottle ranking higher than a more expensive one.

    Knob Creek bourbon whiskey

    9. Knob Creek Bourbon ($31)

    A brand hailing from the famous Jim Beam distillery in Clermont, Kentucky, Knob Creek is distilled in small batches and features a slight sweetness reminiscent of the oak barrels in which it's aged, with hints of toasted nuts. This nine-year-aged bourbon won double gold at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

    8. Elijah Craig 12-year-old Barrel Proof Bourbon ($40)

    Aged for 12 years in American white oak barrels, the Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Bourbon has a strong caramel presence, with fruity undertones. The deep amber color is a pleasant addition to your favorite glass tumbler, and the finish, while smooth, lingers like mint.

    7. Eagle Rare Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey ($30)

    The Eagle Rare Single Barrel won gold or double gold every year at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition from 2003 to 2013. Rich with toffee, cocoa, and almond flavors, this bourbon is an affordable and delicious way to whet your palate with bourbon.

    Parker's Heritage Collection Bourbon Whiskey

    6. William Larue Weller Bourbon ($100)

    Distiller Buffalo Trace notes to look for hints of plum, pepper, and new leather in the William Larue Weller bourbon. It may be the most expensive bottle on our list, but this variety of bourbon is barrel proof, meaning it's not diluted with distilled water after the aging process; in layman's terms, it's a higher percentage of alcohol than other comparable bourbons.

    5. Parker's Heritage Collection 10-year-old Wheated Bourbon ($80)

    This bourbon pays tribute to master distiller Parker Beam, a veteran distiller with more than 45 years in the industry. Bourbon has to be composed of at least 51% corn, and Parker's Heritage 10-year is also made with wheat to create this softer, nuttier variety of bourbon whiskey.

    4. George T. Stagg Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey ($49)

    Distilling company Sazerac describes the George T. Stagg Kentucky Straight bourbon as "hearty," with rich, dessert-y notes like dark chocolate, nougat, vanilla, and molasses. Wine Enthusiasts magazine gave this bottle 4.8 out of five stars, and the LA Whisk(e)y Society gave it an A- grade.

    3. Pappy Van Winkle 20-year-old Family Reserve Whiskey ($99)

    Pappy Van Winkle makes some of the most coveted bourbon whiskies the world has ever seen. Aged for 20 years, PVW20 is the No. 1-rated bourbon whiskey in the world, with a score of 99 out of 100 from the Beverage Tasting Institute. Drinkers enjoy a taste of the south with notes of caramelized pecans, fudge, and spices.

    Black Maple Hill 21 Cask 7 Bourbon Whiskey

    2. Pappy Van Winkle 15-year-old Family Reserve Whiskey ($70)

    Aged for five fewer years than its older cousin, the Pappy Van Winkle 15-year ranks almost as highly (98 from the Beverage Tasting Institute), but is significantly more affordable to the less-seasoned bourbon drinker. Aromatic notes include "sweet corn dripping with butter,""dark toffee," and "hazelnuts," while the taste is a delicious and dark raisin-y sweetness.

    1. Black Maple Hill 21 Cask 7 Bourbon ($45)

    True to the name, Black Maple Hill 21 Cask 7 carries a powerful nose of maple syrup and vanilla on the finish. This is a bourbon that usually sells faster than liquor stores can stock it, and rivals Pappy in both quality and scarcity.

    With a five-star rating from Wine Enthusiasts magazine and an A grade from the LA Whisk(e)y Society, Black Maple Hill, according to wine and spirits merchant K&L Wines, has "the makings of a cult whiskey."

    Washington University in St. Louis Dining

    Of all the gripes students have about college, the biggest usually has to do with the food. But not every college fails where food is concerned; in fact, some colleges offer food so good that it's just like mom used to make.

    To create this list, school information website Niche rounded up data from students at colleges around the US who rated their schools in the quality of both on-campus dining facilities and off-campus dining options.

    Many of the colleges on the list are large schools, with plenty of resources devoted to whipping up near-gourmet meals for their students. Others are centered in big college towns (where cheap-yet-satisfying meals are available at every corner) or in big cities (like New York, which is known for its food scene).

    We've included some quotes from students on Niche to show why each school made the list.

    50. University of Kansas

    Lawrence, Kansas

    "There is a dining hall near every dormitory. How many meals you get depends on your meal plan but the dining halls are set up in a buffet style, so it's unlimited amounts per visit."

    "Huge variety of places to choose from, all conveniently on Mass [Street] and throughout Lawrence. A lot of places deliver and offer student discounts. A lot of trademark Lawrence places and local dining."

    Visit Niche for more information on University of Kansas.



    49. University of Central Florida

    Ocala, Florida

    UCF has a number of big-chain names on campus— including Chik-fil-A, Burger King, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and Starbucks — but also features some specialty purveyors like the YUM YUM Cupcake Truck. Students can take advantage of weekly dining services deals, like a free 20-ounce fountain soda with the purchase of a sandwich at Bits & Bytes Cafe, or $0.99 coffee refills at Java City.

    Visit Niche for more information on University of Central Florida.



    48. DePaul University

    Chicago, Illinois

    "DePaul offers a vast variety of foods to each for each meal of the day."

    "DePaul also makes an attempt to encourage healthy eating, and offers both vegetarian and vegan options to its students. On-campus food is definitely the easiest option for freshmen, and most of the dining places are centrally located in the Student Center on the Lincoln Park campus."

    Castle Arenberg, part of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.

    Economics as a university subject has boomed in popularity since the financial crisis, but which European institutions are producing the best graduates? 

    QS recently released its worldwide university rankings, which it has broken down by both by region and subject.

    The university ranking is based on the institution's reputation with academics and employers, and the number of research citations the school gets per paper published in a specific discipline — in this case, economics and econometrics.

    20) Maastricht University is the Netherlands' fourth-best institute for an education in economics, according to QS. Sixty percent of business and economics students come from abroad and many courses are taught in English.



    19) Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich comes second for Germany. This is where controversial German economist Hans-Werner Sinn teaches.



    18) KU Leuven is Belgium's second-highest ranking university for economics. It's the oldest university in the country and many of the courses are offered in English.

    Tamara Mellon

    Tamara Mellon, the co-founder of luxury shoe brand Jimmy Choo, is one of the wealthiest women in Britain with a net worth around £180 million ($280 million).

    Go straight to the life of Tamara Mellon >

    She is also arguably one of only two women on The Sunday Times Rich List of the UK's 1,000 wealthiest people who made her own fortune, rather than inheriting it or being married to someone rich. (The other being is Harry Potter author JK Rowling, whose net worth is £570 million.)

    She had an affluent start to life. her father is stuntman and Vidal Sassoon owner Tom Yeardye. Her mother is Chanel model Ann. But she rose to the top of the fashion industry through her own business acumen and eye for trends.

    She's so ruthless she once sued her own mother over Jimmy Choo's assets that she claimed didn't belong to her. And she ended her partnership with the company founder who's name was used for the luxury brand company, in a bitter corporate divorce.

    Her personal life has been just as colourful. She met her banking heir husband Matthew Mellon in Alcoholics Anonymous, only to part ways after allegations of drug taking and affairs. 

    Here, Business Insider details her life through pictures and excerpts from her book "In My Shoes" and interviews with Vogue and the New York Times.

    Tamara Mellon was born Tamara Yeardye in London, on July 7, 1967.



    She is the daughter of former Chanel model Ann Yeardye née Davis and entrepreneur Tom Yeardye, who co-founded the hair salon chain Vidal Sassoon. Here he is in 1973.

    Business leaders of today interact with people from all over the world, making exposure to a diverse population more imperative than ever. 

    To find which business schools offer the most student diversity — schools where the student body is representative of the country's larger diverse population — online grad school guide GraduatePrograms.comsurveyed over 10,000 current and former business school students about their programs.

    Students rated their schools on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the highest score. The scores were then averaged together and ranked accordingly.

    INSEAD, located in Fontainebleau, France, came out on top, followed by two schools based in Spain. California State University at Los Angeles is the most diverse of US-based business schools.

    Cisco employees

    Flexible work hours and the option of working from home can alleviate stress and lead to greater productivity.

    More and more firms are starting to allow employees to telecommute, but there are a few front runners providing exceptionally flexible work arrangements.

    To find the most flexible companies in America, we looked at Business Insider's latest list of the 50 best companies to work for in America, based on exclusive data from PayScale, which surveyed employees in the US who work at companies that appeared on the 2014 Fortune 500 list.

    San Jose, California-based tech company Cisco Systems topped the list of the most flexible companies. It ranked seventh on our list of the 50 best companies to work for.

    Payscale determined flexibility by evaluating the percentage of respondents who answered, "Yes, I telecommute 100% of the time," or "Yes, I telecommute most of the time," or "Yes, I telecommute some of the time," to the question, "Are you able to telecommute/work from home?" (Read the full methodology here.)
