The much anticipated Poets & Quants rankings is out! Let’s see how P&Q rates the top schools:
• Harvard’s on top. As usual. Here’s the P&Q position on this: “No rival beats Harvard in the formidable resources it brings to the game: more superstar professors than any other school, the diversity of its course offerings, the stellar quality of its students, the size and scope of its campus, and the career achievements of its alumni spread all over the world.”
• The M7 all take up the first 7 slots of the rankings.
• Duke Fuqua slipped out of the top 10 to 11th place this year.
• Yale SOM make it to the top 10 for its first time ever (10th place) in P&Q rankings history.

Poets & Quants ranks the top U.S. MBA programs by combining the five most influential rankings and weighing them based on the “soundness of their methodologies.” U.S. News is given the most weight at 35%, followed by Forbes (at 25%), Financial Times and Businessweek both at 15%, and The Economist at 10%.
