US business schools continue to dominate top tier

The Economist has updated its MBA ranking for 2013. The ranking lists the top 100 business schools worldwide, based on factors like post-graduation salary and networking potential.

In the ranking, US business schools account for 16 of the top 25. Chicago Booth has held on to the top spot for the second straight year, and is followed by Dartmouth Tuck. UC Berkeley Haas jumped three spots to take third place, and is followed by Virginia Darden.

The first non US school is Spain's IESE, which rose four places to edge in to the top five.

The top ten is rounded out by Harvard Business School, NYU Stern, HEC Paris, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and Columbia, in that order.

Further down the ranking, there was a bit more movement from last year. For example, Australia's University of Queensland rose 13 places to land at spot 14, and Hong Kong University (HKU) rose 17 to break into the top 25, at number 24. According to the Economist, HKU "breaks into the top 25 for the first time because of improving salary statistics and the fact that its students profess such delight with the programme."
