The site Poets & Quants published its annual ranking of Full-Time U.S. MBA programs in the U.S., a comprehensive formulation based on the five most important rankings of MBA programs- The Economist, Businessweek, Forbes, Financial Times, and US News with each program allocated an index between 1 and 100.
Harvard topped the ranking for the fourth time in a row, followed by Stanford, Chicago, Wharton, and Kellogg. The competition was tight between the four leading programs (only 1.8 points separated the first and fourth), and overall there were no significant changes from last year. According to the ranking, Chicago topped Wharton for the fourth time in a row, sealing H/S/C as the MBA leaders, rather than H/S/W.
Rounding out the top-20:
19 – Texas
20 – Indiana
In addition, P&Q also published a separate ranking of the best MBA programs outside the U.S.:
8- HEC Paris
10- SDA Bocconi
