Harvard Business School
Stanford’s Graduate School of Business (GSB) and the Stanford Law School (SLS) continue to excel in the U.S. News and World Report’s (USNWR) rankings. The GSB tied with Harvard University for first place among business schools in the publication’s 2013 rankings, while the Law School was ranked second in the nation.
Application numbers decreased this year for most of the top business schools in the country, including Stanford’s Graduate School of Business (GSB), which saw its application volume decrease by 8.13 percent during the most recent application cycle.
Despite a growing number of students nationwide who are hoping to avoid a tough job market by applying directly to business school, many at Stanford are still opting for a more winding path.
