US News Releases New MBA Rankings

Stanford and Wharton share the top spot this year

US News and World Report has updated its ranking of the best business schools. 

This year, the Stanford Graduate School of Business and UPenn's Wharton School are tied for the top position. Last year, Wharton held the top spot, while Stanford was ranked second.

Stanford and Wharton are followed by Chicago - Booth and Northwestern - Kellogg, which are tied for third place. MIT - Sloan rounds out the top-five.

The Harvard Business School is ranked sixth, and is followed by UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business. Columbia, Yale, and NYU - Stern round out the top 10, in that order.

The ranking considered all 477 US-based business schools that have AACSB accreditation. Their MBA programs were surveyed in 2019 and early 2020; a total of 364 responded.

Some of the factors that US News uses to determine its ranking include a peer assessment, placement success, student selectivity, and mean GMAT and GRE scores, among others.

This ranking does not consider all schools with AACSB accreditation: it ranks only those in the USA.
