2016 Poets&Quants’ MBA Ranking

poetsquants-2016top100usmbaprograms-01

The Definitive List Of The Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs of 2016 — 1 to 25

The seventh annual Poets&Quants’ MBA ranking takes the five most influential lists from U.S. News, The Financial Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes and The Economist and combines them together using weights based on the soundness of each publication’s methodology. Bringing them together this way diminishes the anomalies that often crop up in a ranking in a given year.

Note: Ranks for both The Financial Times and The Economist surveys are U.S. only, not the overall global ranks. The decline in the U.S. News rank for NYU Stern reflects a penalty for a reporting mistake.
