There has been some major revision compared to prior years' rankings. “Rather than assign weightings ourselves, as most rankings do, we took an approach recommended by several of the business schools we spoke with: Let the stakeholders decide,” explains Caleb Solomon, Bloomberg senior editor. “To do this, we surveyed students, alumni, and recruiters to learn what was most important to them. Their answers determined the weightings of each of our new indexes. Then, based on our survey results and compensation data, we calculated overall rankings.”

Weighted on -COMPENSATION, NETWORKING, LEARNING & ENTREPRENEURSHIP

This approach puts significantly more importance on pay and placement.
