QS Global MBA Rankings: United States


Just over 100 business schools from the US are included in this year’s MBA rankings, with two sharing the honor of being the best in the world. Stanford University and the Wharton School of Management at the University of Pennsylvania are the two schools which can’t be separated, although each school has its own strengths.

Of the five ranking indicators (explained in our methodology), Stanford out-scores Wharton for return on investment, and entrepreneurship and alumni outcomes, while Wharton performs better for diversity, employability and thought leadership.

The third best MBA program in the US is at MIT Sloan, and scores a perfect 100 for thought leadership. When asked about the program’s strengths, a school spokesperson said: “The faculty at MIT Sloan are continually working to keep the curriculum relevant for the next generation of leaders. This year in particular we are introducing more machine learning and AI topics into the core curriculum, and faculty are including more analytics in their teaching.”
