For the third time in five years, Harvard Business School and the Stanford University Graduate School of Business have tied for the top spot in U.S. News's rankings of Best Business Schools.

Jones Graduate School of Business jumped nine spots from a tie for 34th to a tie for 25th; the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business climbed 12 spots from a tie for 37th to a tie for 25th; and the University of Rochester William E.
