The Economist publishes MBA rankings of top business schools every year since 2001. It incorporates information gathered from both alumni and current student surveys. It also takes into account the data provided by the school.
Every year The Economist selects 130 prominent business schools of the world to partake in a survey and share important data. About 20 percent of the school’s rank is based on the surveys of its students and alumni, and the remaining 80 percent comes from data the school provides. Of any given school’s score, 50 percent comes from the surveys of the current year, 30 percent comes from the surveys of the previous year and 20 percent comes from the surveys of the year prior.
