US News Updates MBA Rankings for 2019

Harvard and Booth tie for the top spot in the full-time MBA ranking; Haas leads the part-time list

US News and World Report has released its 2019 MBA rankings, which rank US-based full- and part-time programs separately.

For the full-time MBA ranking, Harvard Business School and the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business are tied for the top position. The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School takes third place. The Yale School of Management has dropped out of the top-10 this year, and is now tied for 11th place with Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. The University of Michigan's Ross School of Business has broken into the top-10 this year, and is tied for seventh place with the University of Berkeley's Haas School of Business. See the top 10 schools below.

In terms of part-time programs, Haas leads this year's ranking. Haas is followed by Booth, and at third place is Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.

For the business school rankings, US News surveyed 480 MBA programs, all of which are accredited by AACSB. Of those schools, the publication ranked 127 schools, because these schools provided enough data to calculate the full-time ranking. The schools were ranked on factors such as placement success and student selectivity.
