MBA Rankings 2018

An overview of the main MBA rankings and their expected publication dates

For MBA rankings in 2018, a lot of potential disruptions are may be in store. Will changes like the planned Brexit have an effect on UK business schools? Will Asian business schools increase in stature? Will Donald Trump’s immigration policies impact the perceived prestige of US business schools?

Overall, last year’s ranking changes saw minor shifts among top schools, but overall, MBA salaries continued to improve across the board. In the 2017 Global MBA Ranking from the Financial Times, top UK business schools did fairly well, while some in the lower half of the ranking weren't quite so lucky. Insead led the list, but half of the top ten schools were based in the US. US business schools, in general, improved their standings in that ranking, with some exceptions. Schools in Australia also did well, while the Canadian schools lost ground. On the international version of the Best Business Schools Ranking from Bloomberg Businessweek, Insead led the pack here as well, while the UK schools in the top 10: London Business School, Oxford - Said, and Cambridge - Judge, lost some ground. 

What's in store for 2018? If the 2018 Global MBA Ranking from the Financial Times is any indication, improvement will be seen by US business schools, while there will be more of a mixed bag for UK schools. 

Below you’ll find a list of the main MBA rankings and their expected publication dates in 2018. For the rankings that have already been published, we’ll note the top 5 schools.
