Rankings hold steady for SOM and YLS

In this year’s U.S. News and World Report rankings, both the Yale Law School and the Yale School of Management remained in the same positions as last year.

Yale Law School claimed first place once again in the recently published 2015 rankings, continuing its lead from 2013 and 2014. Harvard took second place, with Stanford in third and Columbia in fourth, marking no change from last year’s list.

Yale-SOM ranked at the 13th spot, retaining its position from last year. Schools in the top 10 for 2015 include Harvard Business School, Northwestern University Kellog, and New York University Stern. These were also in the top 10 in the 2014 rankings.

For United States business school rankings, US news uses a ranking methodology that includes a peer assessment score, a recruiter assessment score, a score of placement success and student selectivity.

Yale has not been in the top 10 of the U.S. news MBA rankings since 2012.
