Notes:

NR – Not ranked. Because the Financial Times and The Economist, which both rank 100 institutions, include many non-U.S. schools in their rankings, a larger number of very good MBA programs at U.S. schools remain unranked by those two publications. BusinessWeek ranks 57 U.S. schools; Forbes, 75 schools; U.S. News & World Report, 100.

Methodology: Schools on each of the five major rankings were scored from a high of 100 to a low of 1, the numerical rank of the 100th school on any one list. Then, those sums were brought together, weighting the BusinessWeek ranking 30%, the Forbes ranking 25%, the U.S. News & World Report rankings 20%, the Financial Times rankings 15%, and The Economist ranking 10%. These differing weights reflect the authority and credibility we believe each of these rankings have in the business school universe. For a deeper explanation of the strengths and weaknesses of each system, see how we think the most influential rankings stack up against each other in “Turning the Tables: Ranking the MBA Rankings.”

THE PRIMARY ADVANTAGE OF THE POETS&QUANTS RANKING

The Poets&Quants ranking has an important advantage over all other lists: because it is a composite of the five major rankings, the P&Q methodology tends to smooth out the impact of statistical anomalies that are often present in any single ranking. Instead, the Poets&Quants system tends to award MBA programs for consistency across the five rankings. In BusinessWeek’s recent 2010 ranking, for example, many observers were stunned to find that Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business ranked 12th, ahead of the business schools at Dartmouth, Cornell, Yale, North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and New York University, among others.
