Tuck rose an astonishing 17 places in this year’s ranking to take the #2 spot just under Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. This is Stanford’s second year in a row in 1st place.
Who are this year’s winners and losers?
Poets & Quants analyzed the winners and losers in Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking. University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business gained 8 spots last year, and has continued on its rise, jumping another 4 places this year to end up in 5th place.
When there are winners, there are also losers. Eleven of the top 20 business schools dropped in their rank this year. The biggest loser is the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business, which fell 9 spots, taking it out of the top 20, to #22.
According to Bloomberg Businessweek, the 2019-2020 ranking is based on data from 26,804 surveys of MBA students and alumni, as well as recruiters.
