Poets&Quants 2021-2022 MBA Ranking: It’s Stanford Again At The Top!

The Definitive List Of The Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs of 2021-2022 — 1 to 25

The annual Poets&Quants’ MBA ranking usually 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. This year’s 2021-2022 list takes a different approach. We’ve excluded from the composite ranking both Businessweek and The Economist. Businessweek’s rankings, shown in the table, were not included in our tabulation for the Poets&Quants list due to serious questions raised about its methodology, while The Economist was dropped because so many U.S. schools declined to cooperate with it.

Note: All ranks in the table are the latest for each of the five most influential MBA rankings, even though Businessweek and The Economist rankings were not included in our composite ranking for the first time. Ranks for both The Financial Times and The Economist surveys are U.S. only, not the overall global ranks.
