Bloomberg Businessweek Updates US MBA Ranking for 2019

Once again, the Stanford MBA leads the list of the best American programs

The publication Bloomberg Businessweek has updated its list of best US MBA programs for 2019.

For the second year in a row, the MBA from Stanford Graduate Business School leads the ranking. 

Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business, however, rose a whopping 17 spots to snag the runner-up position. Harvard Business School's MBA holds steady at spot number three. 

Taking fourth place is the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business, and finishing out the top-five is the University of Virgnia's Darden School of Business, which rose four spots.

The rest of the Top 10 MBAs saw a bit of minor shuffling. The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School lost some ground this year, dropping from number two to number six. The MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management also fell, from number four to number seven. 

Falling two spots each are UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business (placed eighth this year) and Columbia Business School (ninth.) Rounding out the top-ten is Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.

See the top 10 schools below.

To determine the MBA ranking, Businessweek  takes a number of variables into consideration, including Compensation, Learning, Networking, and Entrepreneurship. 

In all, the current ranking consists of 94 US-based full-time MBA programs. 

Bloomberg Businessweek typically publishes a non-US MBA ranking as well, usually later in the year.
