Thanks to the worldwide falling costs of education, there are plenty of business students walking around, and what better place for them to connect than MBA Watch, the world's first social network for MBA holders?

Over the course of five years, Stanford undergrad Eric Bahn transformed his personal blog into a GMAT preparation site which drew the attention of millions. Today, however, 'Beat the GMAT' has evolved from the suggestions of one man to those of a global community. MBA Watch not only connects prospective and current businesspeople, but amalgamates a wealth of information.

You can follow schools, analyze statistics (average required GMAT scores by school, for instance) or simply chat with like-minded people. Bahn, despite never actually attending business school, has doubled the company's value in just one year and genuinely hopes to extend the network's size and influence in the future.
