Financial Times MBA Rankings for 2013

The Financial Times recently released its new global business school rankings for 2013. For the first time since 2005, Harvard Business School holds the top spot, passing last year’s #1, Stanford GSB. This is teh fourth time that HBS has topped the FT rankings.

Many credit Harvard’s push to improve its diversity with the school’s return to #1 in the FT rankings. One criterion on which FT ranks business schools is diversity, and in this area HBS has made some big strides in just the past year. While 34% of Harvard’s Class of 2013 comes from overseas, 43% of the Class of 2014 are international.
