The Economist Releases its Latest MBA Ranking

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business retains the top spot

The Economist magazine has released its annual ranking of full-time MBA programs with a couple of new entries into the top 5.

While the University of Chicago Booth School of Business's MBA retained the top spot, Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management moved from 7th place to 2nd.

Next is University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business (2nd last year), Harvard (4th, just like last year) and Stanford moved up from 13th place last year to round out this year's top 5. That means all of the top 5 are now US-based schools.

This year the ranking was weighted on four career-focused categories: opening new career opportunities (35% weighting), personal development and educational experience (35%), increasing salary (20%) and the potential to network (10%).

The Economist's ranking is due to be published in their print edition this weekend, but the top 100 is already available on its website.
