Business school news site Poets & Quants released its annual composite ranking of top U.S. MBA programs Thursday and Goizueta’s full-time program remains ranked among the best in the country.The program stayed at No. 20, thus holding steady from the 2014 list.
“P&Q’s lineup of the best U.S. MBA programs, which combines the five most influential rankings and weighs each of them by the soundness of their methodologies, produces a more credible list of the best MBA programs,” writes site founder and editor John Byrne.
“This year, 23 of the top 25 schools had either an identical position as they had last year or experienced a change of only one or two places up or down. The stability in the list is reflective of the fact that from year to year, MBA programs rarely change dramatically. More consequential change may occur over a number of years as a program improves and that improvement becomes more generally recognized by stakeholders.”
The biggest movers in this year’s ranking came from the Midwest. Notre Dame’s Mendoza School rose 12 spots to No. 14. Michigan State’s Broad School of Business climbed 10 spots to No. 25.
