Ranking Analysis:

Stanford GSB nudged Harvard Business School out of its first place ranking for the first time in five years in 2014, according to the 2014 Poets&Quants’ survey. In all of our previous rankings, Stanford was a close second to HBS so it didn’t have to move very far. Both U.S. News and Forbes have the school No. 1 in their latest surveys. The Financial Times puts the school second, behind only Harvard Business School. Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s ranking, which largely measures graduate satisfaction and recruiter sentiment, ranked Stanford fourth in 2014 when it made major changes to its methodology that helped to sink HBS to eighth place. The Economist, meantime, ranks Stanford as seventh best among U.S. schools on its global MBA list.

One Class of 2014 grad summed up his Stanford experience to BW this way: “The people are high caliber but also genuinely nice, very open and accepting, the size of the class, the closeness (spiritually and physically) to Silicon Valley and the tech industry, and the leadership learning opportunities. Other things that stood out are the GSB facilities and the opportunities within the university–outside the business school.”
