US schools Chicago Booth, Virginia Darden, and Dartmouth Tuck top the list

The Economist has published the 2012 edition of its annual "Which MBA?" listings, which rank full-time MBA programs.

This year, US schools dominate most of the top ten. Chicago Booth leads the ranking, and is followed by Darden, Dartmouth Tuck, Harvard, and Columbia.

The highest-ranked European schools are IESE and IMD (ranked 9 and 10, respectively.) Other international schools on the list include York Schulich (ranked 16,) University of Queensland (ranked 27,) and Mannheim Business School (ranked 36.)

The top-ranked MBA program in Asia is the University of Hong Kong, at place 41.

The rankings are determined by a number of factors like post-graduation salary, and are based primarily on student and alumni surveys. You can read more about methodology in our article on MBA rankings.
