Business School Rankings: Amazingly Stagnant At The Top


The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, meantime, has been ranked anywhere from fifth to first (quite a jump to make in only 4 years). But, as the charts we saw earlier show, Wharton is on average coming in third place.


MIT Sloan MIT Sloan is solidly in the fourth slot, but has been anywhere from #2 to #5 in the last 20 years, and also claimed the #1 spot in 1995 – but is not included in this data.


Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and MIT Sloan have been neck-and-neck for much of the past two decades, but as we can see in this chart, a few years of #6 rankings have given MIT Sloan a slight edge over time. Here we see another big jump – Kellogg went from a #6 ranking to a #2 ranking in just one year, from 1998-1999.
