US News published its updated ranking of the best MBA programs in the U.S. for 2015, putting Stanford at its top. Harvard took second place with Wharton in third. This follows 2014’s three-way tie between these three schools for the ranking’s top spot.

Spots 4-9 in the ranking remained exactly the same as last year – Chicago, MIT, Kellogg, Berkeley, Columba, and Tuck – while Darden took tenth sliding NYU down to share 11-12 with Michigan.

The rest of the ranking:

13-14. Duke, Yale
15. UCLA
16. Darden

18. UNC
19. Washington Olin
20. CMU Tepper
21-22. Emory, Indiana
23. Washington Foster
24. Georgetown
25. Notre Dame

The ranking involved the survey of 464 programs between the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015, of which 385 responded and 126 provided enough information to calculate the ranking according to the follow criteria:
-quality index (40%) composed of their evaluations of the different programs plus employers’ evaluations
-placement index (35%) composed of starting salary and bonus data for alumni and employment rates for alumni
-selectiveness index (25%)- composed of average GMAT/GRE scores, BA GPAs, ad acceptance rates to each program
