The Haas School’s Full-time Berkeley MBA Program placed #10 in the Poets & Quants meta ranking released Dec. 2. The ranking combines results of five recent popular rankings: Businessweek, U.S. News, Forbes, Financial Times, and Economist.
Poets & Quants gives a different weight to each of these five rankings. The Businessweek, Forbes, and U.S. News lists are given a weight of 25 percent each, while the FT is given a 15 percent weight and The Economist is given a 10 percent weight.
The Haas School measures its own standing among competing schools based on internal admissions data. Of the five popular rankings used by Poets & Quants, U.S. News, where Haas ranked #7, comes closest to this internal metric. The Haas School’s other two large degree programs—the Evening & Weekend MBA and the Undergraduate programs—ranked #1 and #2 in U.S. News, respectively.
