Rankings

Rankings are one of several factors many people consider when selecting an MBA program. Rankings vary across publications and websites because each publication uses its own methodology to compare programs; the factors they look at, their data collection methods, and the weight they give to various measures may all differ.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the methodologies of each third-party ranking you are reviewing. Whenever possible, make sure that the factors they value most in an MBA program align with your individual values and preferences.
