U.S. News and World Report Publishes Annual Business School Rankings

Harvard and Stanford share the top slot; some second tier programs advance

The U.S. News and World Report has published the 2013 edition of its annual business school rankings, where it rates and ranks the top U.S. business schools.

In the new rankings, Harvard Business School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business now share the number one position. In the last five years, these schools have shared the top spot four times - the exception being last year, when Stanford had the top spot all to itself, and Harvard was ranked number two.

Otherwise, very little has changed among the rest of the top spots this year. Wharton is ranked number three, while position number four is shared by Kellogg, Booth, and Sloan. The rest of the top ten includes UC Berkeley - Haas, Columbia, Dartmouth - Tuck, and Yale.

However, the real competition seems to be in the lower parts of the ranking, where a few programs have made substantial improvements this year and many schools now tie for single positions. The University of Notre Dame - Mendoza jumped 12 spots to land in a five-way tie at position number 25 (with Ohio State - Fisher, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Vanderbilt - Owen; and Rice University - Jones, which jumped nine spots.) The University of Rochester - Simon leapt 12 spots to position 37, landing it in a tie with Boston - Carroll, Boston University, University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Texas at Dallas.
