The work of building and improving the WashU business school has been rewarded with an uptick in most of our rankings throughout the 2018 ranking season, with rare exception.
Several of the rankings saw substantial increases, including the 18-place jump in the Financial Times‘ global MBA ranking and the nine-place increase in the FT‘s business schools of the Americas ranking. We also saw a substantial increase in The Economists‘ global MBA ranking.
In a few rankings, we saw declines—a clear indication that the work goes on, or that we must keep vigilant in order to stay competitive with peer schools. The Poets & Quants undergraduate ranking, for example, included participation by more competitive schools than we saw in the ranking’s first outing two years ago.
