Notes: U.S. News & World Report rankings are dated by the year in which the ranking was published. U.S. News & World Report began ranking full-time MBA programs in 1990, two years after BusinessWeek’s first ranking. The magazine does not allow access to its historical data, preferring only to show the latest annual results.
