So what are the biggest surprises in these rankings? For one, Wharton continues to fare poorly among alumni and students, only appearing in The Economist rankings (and 20th for faculty and 26th for experience for that matter). Only Duke (Fuqua) appears in all five rankings covering faculty and experience. Nonetheless, seven schools made four-out-of-the-five rankings: Notre Dame (Mendoza), New York University (Stern), Harvard Business School, Vanderbilt (Owen), Columbia Business School, the University of North Carolina (Kenan-Flagler), and the University of Texas (McCombs). Indiana (Kelley) and Emory (Goizueta) appeared in both of the faculty rankings as well.
Vanderbilt (Owen) was a favorite of Princeton Review respondents, ranking 2nd for faculty and 4th for classroom experience. In The Economist, the University of Chicago (Booth) ranked 6th for faculty and 3rd for experience, with UCLA scoring 4th and 5th in those same categories.
