The 2017 US News Rankings are out - there are some big changes!

• Yale is #8, tied with Tuck (it is a top 10 school officially, again!) used to be #13 in 2015
• Booth overtakes Wharton as a tie #2 with Stanford!
• Columbia is down to #10 from 8 in 2015
• Stern Tumbles from #11 to 20 due to a technicality and missing submission deadline.
• Huge gain for Owen and Jones

Yes! Congratulations - great job! It definitely is a confusing moment in the Stern camp right now - not sure what went wrong. I have looked through a lot of the data points and I can't figure out why they would be dinged. The only thing I can see is the average salary perhaps? but puting Stern and Olin, Emory, or Tepper is going to take some getting used to....

Most likely it is because NYU did not submit the complete (and perhaps the more important) data elements on time.

That makes a lot more sense..... but seems like an un-necessary punishment by US News. I am not convinced that was the right move, though I guess adcom now knows how we feel when they disqualify something. This sucks...

While US News may not want to update their rankings, I will be happy to do that on GMAT Club to reflect the True position of the School....

That's an awful way to drop in the rankings.

Now did Owen and Yale go up 5 because they were the first one to submit the data and complemented the data guy on his shirt when they did it? This is going to be an odd year...

I think it'll be a great initiative bb. I stumbled on this website: http://business-schools.startclass.com/ during my research. It is really comprehensive in the sense that it provides end-to-end information (read rankings from the all prominent sources) about each school in addition to its own ranking. The only downside is that the data looks a bit archaic to me. Perhaps we could do something similar but more real-time at gmatclub?

Thanks newbornkyd,

We have aggregated some of the info here: all-2015-mba-rankings-99812.html
But it is probably fairly archaic-looking... while it has the latest data (besides this latest of course). Welcome any suggestions how to improve it!

Moreover, not providing data on time will hurt Stern big time. Most of the users who wants to make it to a business school in the U.S. refers US News and no one will learn about the real reason as to why Stern dropped. They will see at #20, because it is at #20 and this might affect the # of applications at Stern the coming year.

You can find it here: all-2015-mba-rankings-99812.html (it says 2015 since that is the year it was released in), it is "2016 per US News"

Yale at 8 is laughable. Also, Chicago and Stanford tied for 2? Yikes.... There are ten people on this entire site who would choose Booth over Stanford.

Cannot believe booth is #2... I personally would never choose Booth over HSW after visiting all 4 and working with graduates from all 4.

Stern's comment on the rankings: http://www.stern.nyu.edu/experience-ste ... oredetails

While US News obviously has a right to enforce its deadlines, this feels like an incredible misrepresentation of data on their part.

Why is Yale at 8 laughable?

And you're only half right about Booth. I don't think I know a single person that would choose Booth over GSB - even folks who live in Chicago.

Yale is #8 because of it's name. If you put the same students and employment stats in a school named "Virginia Tech" or "Boston College", no way would it be this high. I visited most schools in the top 10 and was shocked at the valley of quality between the other schools and Yale. When asking their consulting club about MBB, they said.... "yeah we place pretty well, I think Bain is trying to hire more here." Are you joking? Every kid at Tuck who can walk and chew gum at the same time can get a job at MBB if they choose. If Yale was a stock, it is just valued at a way higher multiple than the other schools based on it's undergrad pedigree and possibility of improvement, not on measurable statistics.
