Ranking the Best B-Schools in the World

Stanford was ranked the top U.S. business school in the Bloomberg Businessweek 2021-22 Best B-Schools MBA ranking. A repeat winner, Stanford scored highest in compensation, networking, and entrepreneurship. Dartmouth’s Tuck school came in second, with Harvard third. For the first time, Bloomberg Businessweek's MBA ranking included a Diversity Index that measures U.S. schools on race, ethnicity, and gender in their classes.

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 119 MBA programs around the world. IMD once again was tops in Europe, and CEIBS was a repeat winner in Asia-Pacific. Queen’s Smith school climbed to No. 1 in Canada. Three schools were ranked for the first time, and 102 schools in the ranking moved up or down.

Rankings were based on 19,955 surveys from students, alumni, and recruiters, as well as compensation and employment data from each school. For the first-ever Diversity Index, U.S. schools also provided data on race, ethnicity, and gender in their classes. Here's what we learned about the state of race and gender at MBA programs in the U.S.


The Bloomberg Businessweek 2021-22 Best B-Schools MBA ranking created a Diversity Index for U.S. business schools that for the first time measures race, ethnicity, and gender.  Race and ethnicity count for 50% of the diversity score, and gender the other 50%.
