Graduate Business Schools

The purpose of this data set is to collect information that will help students seeking an MBA make the best decision for them.

Current Collection Period

We are currently collecting data for the 2017 rankings season, which means most partners will publish this data in the Fall of 2016. As such, data currently being reported will reflect the 2015 cohort, which means graduates from the spring of 2015 and enrollments and costs for the fall 2015 students.


We collect data year round and are always interested in the latest information. Several of our partners will periodically update their data throughout the year to reflect the latest information.  That said, certain publications require submission by a certain  time in order to be included.  Some of these deadlines are included below:
