    "were ranked based on peer assessment surveys conducted in spring 2017 and spring 2018. More than 10 schools appear because of ties"

    This is a ranking based on a popularity contest.

    I think another way to decide is by looking at which colleges are most heavily targeted by firms that interest you e.g. Accounting firms or Investment Banks etc.

    For example 22% of B.B. recruitment in 2017 was from these 10 universities according to WSO

    University of Pennsylvania
    New York University
    Harvard University
    University of Cambridge
    Cornell University
    The University of Texas at Austin
    Columbia University
    Duke University
    University of Chicago
    University of Michigan

    What about all these other graduate programs that are popping up in business schools such MS in Finance or Analytics or Financial Engineering etc.? Could they be the reason the MBA is losing its popularity?

    The MBA is losing popularity among potential applicants due to rising tuition costs & the loss of income for two years, otherwise known as "opportunity cost".

    Specialty master's degree programs arose out of demand for particular specialties combined with the reluctance to attend a 2 year full time program due to the financial considerations.
