“US News & World Report” has come out with its annual rankings of graduate business schools. The rankings were a bit different from last year’s business school rankings with Stanford University and Harvard University flipping slots. This year, Stanford took top prize. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Sloan) is also on the rise, capping the year with a 3rd place ranking (they placed 5th last year and 4th the year before).
It’s important to note that for graduate business schools, the rankings in various publications often greatly differ. For instance, Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business placed 7th this year in the rankings for “US News & World Report,” 8th the previous year, and 7th the year before that. But Tuck ranked 2nd in “The Economist’s” and “Forbes'” system in the last few years and on four occasions, held the top slot in “The Wall Street Journal’s” rankings.
