The Economist’s ranking of the world’s leading business schools

The Economist published its annual ranking of the world’s leading business schools, and ranked Chicago Booth as #1. Kellogg, Harvard, Wharton and Stanford complete the top 5.

American schools dominate the rankings, as this year they claim 16 of the top 20 places in The Economist’s ranking of full-time MBA programmes, and 53 places in the top 100.

It is the sixth time in seven years that Booth has come top. But outside the top five, which includes No. 3 Harvard, No. 4 Wharton and No. 5 Stanford, all of which retained their previous year ranks, there were some big changes. UC-Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business fell out of The Economist’s top ten, slipping four spots each to 11th and 12th, respectively. IESE Business School in Spain jumped 11 places to rank sixth. Warwick retained its previous rank of 18, and it is the top UK program this year, while LBS is ranked 27. HEC climbed from 15 to 13 and INSEAD climbed from 21 to 19.

The rankings are based on a mixture of hard numbers and subjective marks given by students and alumni in four categories: opening new career opportunities (35%), personal development and educational experience (35%), better pay (20%) and networking potential (10%).
