MBA Rankings 2010

In order to gain a broad comparison of the MBA rankings in 2010, we have gathered data from five of the most reputable business publications (Business Week, Financial Times, Forbes, The Economist, and U.S. News) to see which Master in Business Administration programs have been ranked in the top ten. Although each of the publications uses different methods of analysis, from student and alumni surveys to job placement statistics, increases in salary, and faculty reviews, they seem to remarkably agree on many of the schools that made the 2010 cut. The following five schools were included in the MBA rankings list for all five publications, with all but Columbia earning the top place on at least one of the lists. Of these schools, University of Chicago is the only non-Ivy League and was ranked as number one by both Business Week and The Economist.

  • Columbia University
  • Harvard University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Chicago
  • University of Pennsylvania

While private universities seem to dominate the MBA rankings 2010 lists—especially the Ivies, with six of the eight Ivy League schools showing up in the top ten—three public universities (the University of Michigan, University of Virginia, and University of California, Berkley) also appear on at least one top ten list. Most significantly, UC Berkley showed up in the top ten for three out of the five publications and earned the number three spot for The Economist rankings. Other notable mentions include, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dartmouth, which appear on four of the five top ten rankings lists, and Yale and Northwestern (in addition to UC Berkeley), which made it to three of the Master in Business Administration ranking lists in 2010.
