Acceptance Rates & Yield at Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs



Last Updated on April 20, 2024 by Robert C. Hoopes

The year 2023 has brought some good news for MBA aspirants, as acceptance rates at the top full-time MBA programs in the United States have seen a significant increase for the second consecutive year. According to Poets&Quants’ annual ranking, more than half of the top 50 MBA programs, including seven of the top 10, reported a rise in acceptance rates. Additionally, five of the elite M7 business schools also saw their acceptance rates climb year over year.

The surge in acceptance rates can be attributed to a decline in MBA applications at many schools over the past three years, as well as a decrease in yield. This has prompted schools to be more generous in their admissions, leading to more favorable odds for MBA candidates. Many top B-schools have also increased their enrollment in 2023, making it easier for applicants to secure a spot in their desired program.

Acceptance rates went up at 31 schools from 2022 to 2023, with only nine B-schools in the top 100 having rates below 20%. Notable increases were seen at schools like Washington Foster and Rutgers Business School, while some schools like Florida Warrington and Georgia Tech experienced declines. Stanford Graduate School of Business boasted the lowest acceptance rate at 8.4%, while schools like Dartmouth Tuck and Georgetown McDonough saw increases.
