Berkeley-Haas Makes Top Ten in Two Rankings

The Full-time Berkeley MBA Program ranked #10 in Poets & Quants meta ranking, published on Nov. 26. The program also ranked #10 in 2013.

The ranking is based on the results of five previously published rankings: U.S. News & World ReportForbesBloomberg Businessweek, The Financial Times, and The Economist.

“Each ranking is separately weighted to account for our view of their authority and credibility,” writes Poets & Quants. “U.S. News is given a weight of 35%, Forbes, 25%, while both the FT and Businessweek is given a 15% weight, and The Economist, 10% weight.”

In comparison, the school’s own market‐based measure of relative reputation ‐‐ bilateral win rates when both Haas and a competitor admit the same person — puts Haas tied for 6th.
