Harvard & Wharton Tie for 2018’s #1 MBA Program

Harvard Business School moves into a tie for first with the Wharton School in the 2018 ranking

The Definitive List Of The Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs of 2018 — 1 to 25

The ninth 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 given year and also gives applicants a better sense of an overall school’s reputation and brand value. Ranks in parenthesis are year-earlier positions.
