Hello,

Does anyone know why Duke (Fuqua) has gone down so much in the USN rankings over the past years?

Thanks.

The latest US News ranking has Fuqua listed at number 12 -- not too bad I suppose. The 2010 economist rankings has Duke at 17. On the other hand -- Business week has them listed at number 6. Go figure! I wouldn't rely too much on these rankings.

I don't think there is any major decline or anything -- I think the ranking is fair. Duke's program is supposed to be stellar for research and the faculty is top notch. But you still got a lot of heavy hitters such as Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Sloan, Booth, and Kellogg...And more competition from schools like Dartmouth, Columbia, Ross-Michigan, Yale, NYU, Hass...to name a few. Overall, I'd say Duke's ranking is fair IMHO.

How did you come up with the claim?

Duke's ranking has beening improving. From #8 to #6 in BW, and from #14 to #12 in USN, YoY.

There is a dashboard on this forum, current as of 2010, where you can plot the USN ratings for the past few years.
