Chicago Booth, Harvard, and Wharton retain top spots in the US MBA ranking

Bloomberg Businessweek has published the 2012 edition of its MBA rankings, which rank MBA programs in the US and internationally.

In terms of the full-time US MBA programs, the top ten is very similar to last year. Chicago Booth, Harvard, and Wharton retain the three top spots in that order, followed by Stanford and Kellogg. Duke Fuqua held on to its sixth-place ranking, while Cornell Johnson jumped six spots to land at position number seven.

There was some interesting movement further down the list. Maryland Smith moved up 18 places to land at spot 24; and Georgia Terry dropped 16 spots to position 52.

In terms of non-US full-time MBA programs, London Business School knocked INSEAD off the top of the list, having moved up four spots from last year. IE Business School held on to spot number three, while Canada's Queen's University dropped two spots to position four. Oxford Said gained substantial ground, landing at spot number five from 16 last year. Germany's Mannheim Business School, which was not ranked last year, is ranked 12.

According to Businessweek, the ranking judges "business schools on how well they serve their two main constituencies: students and corporate recruiters." Please see our recent article on MBA rankings to learn more about methodologies.
