Top 10 Business Schools In The USA

The Wharton School and Stanford Graduate School of Business are the greatest business schools in the United States, according to US News & World Report.

The Wharton School has regained its top spot after falling to third rank in 2023, while Stanford has risen from sixth to first place.

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, which finished first last year, now shares third position with Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, which finished second.

MIT Sloan rounds out the top five best US MBA programs, ranking fifth.

Each year, US News & World Report ranks the top business schools in the USA based on factors such as graduate incomes, employment rates, GMAT scores, GPAs, and MBA admittance rates.

The top five US business schools belong to the elite M7 club. Harvard Business School and Columbia Business School are the other two members of the group, ranking sixth and tied 12th, respectively. The M7 is largely recognized as one of the top business schools in the world.

Yale School of Management, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, and NYU Stern School of Business are in joint seventh place, while Dartmouth Tuck and Virginia Darden are ranked tenth in the United States, according to US News.

The success of this year’s winners, Wharton and Stanford, can be attributed to their strong total enrollment and graduation rates. Both schools have high average GMAT scores and rank first and second in average base income among the top ten.

They also do well in terms of diversity, with Wharton ranking first and Stanford second in terms of minority students, and Wharton being the only top-ten institution with more women than males in its class.

Stanford’s most recent graduating class had an average GMAT score of 738 and an average GPA of 3.8. Graduates’ average base pay is $197,000, with the best earning a staggering $500,000.
