2019 WalletHub MBA rankings

WalletHub published its 2019 MBA rankings.

WalletHub released their 2019 MBA rankings this week and, while they won’t receive nearly the press of US News & World Report’s rankings, Poets and Quants or Forbes, we think it’s at least worth a blog post. If you’re not familiar with the WalletHub rankings, they give a 50% weight to return on investment, a 40% weight to selectivity and faculty and a 10% weight to ‘campus experience.’ (WalletHub gives the following three factors equal weight in calculating campus experience: gender diversity, share of international student and years of work experience.)

What we really like about WalletHub’s business school rankings is the transparency. In addition to publishing their overall rankings, they also show how the schools rank on ROI, selectivity and faculty and campus experience. High ROIs are well documented even with high tuitions and application volume drops. We assume you are aware that 10 year returns in excess of 300% at the top schools have been calculated by independent parties.

The top five WalletHub business schools ranked by ROI are:

  1. U. Washington (Foster)
  2. Stanford
  3. MIT (Sloan)
  4. Duke (Fuqua)
  5. USC (Marshall)

The overall top five WalletHub business schools are:

  1. Stanford
  2. Harvard
  3. Penn (Wharton)
  4. Chicago (Booth)
  5. MIT (Sloan)
