Bloomberg Businessweek 2018 Best US Business Schools

B-School Ranking

Bloomberg Businessweek conducted its 2018 survey of 10,473 MBA students, 15,050 alumni, and 3,698 recruiters about their business school experiences and their goals. These U.S. rankings are based on their responses, as well as compensation and job-placement data from each school.

Rankings were determined by how well each school did in each of the four weighted indexes:

  1. Compensation (38.5%)
  2. Networking (27.9%)
  3. Learning (23.1%)
  4. Entrepreneurship (10.5%)

These weights were determined by questions asked about the importance of each one to responders of the survey. Bloomberg Business changed its ranking methodology since the 2017 ranking. Therefore a comparison between 2017 and 2018 rankings is not possible.
