BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Amid strong competition from around the world, graduate business programs at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business continue to be ranked among the best in the country and the world, according to Quacquarelli Symonds, which published its 2021 Global MBA Rankings on Sept. 30.
Kelley’s Full-Time MBA Program remains in the top 20 among U.S. programs with a No. 19 ranking and a top 40 program worldwide (38th globally). These rankings came at a time when the number of accredited business programs continues to grow outside the United States, particularly in Asia.
For example, in 2012 there were 13 schools in China accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Today, there are 39 schools in QS’ Global MBA Rankings. European programs are seeing similar growth.
This is the biggest ranking of accredited international MBA programs in the world. QS ranked the most MBA programs ever, 258, and collected nearly 25 percent in additional data on schools at 40 study destinations. It surveyed nearly 70,000 employers and academics. A year ago, QS ranked 240 programs. The company also produces the prestigious World University Rankings.
