Domestically, several schools have gained credibility over the past decade. They include George Washington (+15), the University of Washington Foster (+14), Brigham Young Marriott (+12), and Georgia Tech Scheller (+11). At the opposite end, the University of Maryland Smith has lost the most ground among MBA recommenders, dropping 31 spots from #43 to #74. They were followed by Rochester Simon (-25), Washington Olin (-22), North Carolina Kenan-Flagler (-11), Rice Jones (-11), and Vanderbilt Owen (-11).

Overseas, CEIBS followed the path blazed by other East Asian juggernauts, jumping 28 spaces in the minds of their fellow MBAs. At the same time, three UK gems – Alliance Manchester, Cranfield, and Warwick – have plunged 69 spots between them.
