We recently released our fifth annual list of the World’s Best Business Schools.
For this list, nearly 10,000 readers rated the reputation of the graduates from top business schools around the world.
We included responses only from professionals who said they had experience hiring MBAs at least half the time. We also filtered the data to obtain better geographical balance.

The most notable change to the top 10 business schools according to folks out west was that London Business School fell from No. 9 to No. 11. Here are the top 10 business schools as ranked by survey respondents on the West Coast:
