US News Updates MBA Rankings for 2015

Stanford leads this year's full-time MBA ranking; the EMBA list is topped by Chicago - Booth

US News and World Report has published its annual ranking of best MBA programs.

In terms of full-time MBA programs, the top-five schools that led the list last year lead it again this year. Stanford tops the list, and is followed by Harvard and Wharton. The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management round out the top-five.

The schools in the top-ten list are virtually identical to those last year. Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, the University of California at Berkeley's Haas School of Business, Columbia Business School, and Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business again take spots six to nine, in that order. However, this year, the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business has replaced New York University's Stern School of Business at position number 10.

For the part-time MBA ranking, Haas' Evening & Weekend MBA leads the list, and is followed by Booth's Evening MBA program and Kellogg's Part-Time MBA program. Rounding out the top-five are NYU - Stern's Part-Time MBA and the Fully Employed MBA program from the University of California at Los Angeles' Anderson School of Management.

For Executive MBA programs, Chicago - Booth takes the top spot, and is followed by Wharton and Kellogg. Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and Columbia Business School round out the top-five.

Each year, US News ranks graduate programs across a range of disciplines. For the MBA rankings, the news magazine surveyed some 464 master's programs in business in fall 2014 and early 2015. 385 schools responded. The surveys do not include schools outside of the United States.

The categories by which the programs were ranked include a quality assessment, placement success, and student selectivity. Specific metrics include mean starting salaries of graduates, as well as mean GMAT and GRE scores, among others.
