US business schools have all three of the top slots in the MBA chart, indicating that the US dominates the elite echelon. The MBA programme at Stanford GSB has been ranked #1 for four years running, with The Wharton School coming in second and surpassing Harvard Business School, which is ranked third.

India in focus
According to the results, IIM Bangalore has surpassed IIM Ahmedabad as the top MBA programme in India.
