Business School Rankings: Amazingly Stagnant At The Top

rankings The first seven spots are…exactly the same as before. The gap between HBS and Stanford GSB remains the same, Wharton is still solidly in the third spot, and the distance between MIT Sloan and Kellogg has inched closer. Columbia has displaced Dartmouth Tuck, and Duke Fuqua has jumped three spots and bumped New York University’s Stern School of Business out of the Top 10.. Most of the motion is in the 11-20 rankings, but still, no schools have shifted more than two places other than Duke.

Now, let’s go back a whopping twenty years: Average Rank Over 20 Years:



Stanford has picked up a very small lead over HBS (due to a #5 ranking in ’96 as we will see below). Wharton is once again in the number three spot, followed by MIT Sloan, Kellogg, and Booth. Columbia and Berkeley Haas have switched places once again, and Tuck and Duke Fuqua close out the ninth and tenth spots just like in the 15 year average. Looking at the 11-20 spots, no school has shifted more than one place in either direction since the 15 year average, or three places from the 10 year to 20 year average (Yale SOM & Duke Fuqua).
