“Some 27 of the 100 schools ranked by The Economist experienced double-digit changes,” writes John Byrne of business school news and analysis site, Poets&Quants. “If you add two of the four schools that fell off the 2017 list, there are 29 MBA programs with double-digit dips or jumps.

“Typically, such dramatic changes occur further down on rankings as the data used to crank out a numerical rank thins and becomes less reliable. More often, rankings show only small changes year-over-year among the top 10 to 20 schools. Not so with The Economist‘s oddball MBA ranking. This year, only two of the Top 25 schools maintained their year-earlier ranks. The 23 remaining programs saw changes that ranged from a gain of 20 places–the University of Florida’s Hough School of Business–to a loss of nine positions–IESE Business School in Spain–in a single year. The average movement for a Top 25 school this year was five places.”
