  • Survey Methodology

    To determine our Best Business Schools Ranking, we use a formula that weighs the most relevant categories for an overall quality ranking. Each school's overall score was calculated using the following formula: 25% acceptance rates, 25% standardized scores (GMAT), 25% quality of life (location/proximity to amenities and student life opportunities and events), and 25% employment opportunities (prestige and % employed upon graduation).
