US News Releases 2017 MBA Ranking

Harvard, Stanford, and Booth lead this year's ranking of full-time MBA programs

US News & World Report has updated its rankings of MBA programs for 2017. The rankings are broken up into three categories: full-time MBAs, part-time MBAs, and Executive MBAs.

Harvard Business School leads this year's  full-time MBA ranking, taking the top spot away from Stanford Graduate School of Business, which is this year tied for second with the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.

UPenn's Wharton School, MIT - Sloan, and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management round out the top-five. See a list of the top 10 full-time MBA programs, and their changes from last year, below.

In terms of the part-time MBA ranking, UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business earns the top spot. Chicago - Booth, Northwestern - Kellogg, UCLA - Anderson, and Michigan - Ross make up the remainder of the top five.

For the Executive MBA ranking, Wharton leads the bunch. The rest of the top five include Chicago - Booth, Northwestern - Kellogg, Columbia, and NYU - Stern, in that order. 

Each year, US News ranks graduate programs across a range of disciplines.

For the graduate business school rankings, the news magazine surveyed 470 MBA programs in the fall of 2015 and early 2016. Of those 470 business schools surveyed, a total of 379  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.
