Stanford GSB Cruises Into First In P&Q’s 2019-2020 MBA Ranking

Stanford Graduate School of Business

Stanford Graduate School of Business’ MBA program placed first in the tenth annual Poets&Quants composite ranking of the best in the U.S.

The Definitive List Of The Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs of 2019-2020 — 1 to 25

The tenth 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.
