Poets&Quants’ Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs of 2012

By Kyle Watkins (last updated: June 7, 2013)

In a recent article Poets & Quants released its own ranking of the top US MBA programs.

Although several established rankings are available (e.g. from The Financial Times, Forbes, US News, Business Weeks), we consider Poets and Quants’s ranking valuable because it is built as a composite of the 5 major rankings. As most rankings’ methodology can be criticized (often because of the emphasis that they arbitrarily put on a given criteria), “combining the five most influential rankings doesn’t eliminate the flaws in each system, but it does significantly diminish them. When an anomaly pops on one list due to either faulty survey technique or biased methodology, bringing all the data together tends to suppress it” according to the ranking’s author.

If you’re unfamiliar with P&Q’s ranking, their site is worth having a look at.
