The Economist Releases MBA Ranking for 2019

Chicago - Booth once again leads the ranking; HEC Paris and SDA Bocconi make strong gains

The Economist has updated its "Which MBA?" Ranking for 2019.

This year, the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business leads the list (again.) Harvard's MBA once again takes the runner-up spot.

France's HEC Paris is now ranked number three. It rose 10 spots this year and is the highest ranked non-US school in some time (Switzerland's IMD Business School nabbed the number three position in 2011.)

The MBA programs from Northwestern - Kellogg and the Wharton School round out the top-five. 

UCLA's Anderson School of Management has risen two spots this year to take position number six, while another California School, UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business has jumped four positions to take spot number seven.

Stanford University and Michigan - Ross are eighth and ninth, respectively. Finishing out the top-ten is Spain's IESE Business School.

Outside of the top-ten, Italy's SDA Bocconi notably rose 11 spots, placing 13th this year. Likewise, USC Marshall broke into the top-20 this year, rising 10 positions to take number 18.

See below for a list of the top 20 schools.
