Predict the MBA Rankings Contest: The Winning Entry

Image for Predict the MBA Rankings Contest: The Winning Entry

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Predict the Order of the US News & World Report Best Business Schools Rankings Contest!

If you haven’t checked out the rankings, read 7 Things You Need to Know About the 2017 U.S. News Business School Ranking.

There were definitely some surprises and upsets! (Tell us how you feel about them here in our nifty poll)

Out of the 150+ entries we received, only 5 entrants guessed the correct order!

Here’s how the Top 10 played out in the end:

1. Harvard Business School
T-2. Stanford GSB
T-2. Chicago / Booth
4. Wharton
T-5. MIT Sloan
T-5. Northwestern / Kellogg
7. Berkeley / Haas
T-8. Dartmouth / Tuck
T-8. Yale SOM
10. Columbia Business School

Since we had 5 entrants guess correctly, we put their entry numbers into a randomizer and… (drum roll, please), the winner is “Richard”!

We’ll be contacting you directly to let you know and, as promised, you’ll be receiving a $200 Amazon Gift Card!

And, since we have too much time on our hands (apparently), we decided to create a composite of every entry we received. If those who entered into the contest had taken over U.S. News’ MBA rankings, this is what the top 10 would have looked like:

1. Harvard Business School
2. Stanford GSB
3. Wharton
4. U. Chicago Booth
5. MIT Sloan
6. Northwestern / Kellogg
7. Columbia
8. Berkeley / Haas
9. Dartmouth / Tuck
10. Yale SOM

 Thanks again for participating!
