After dropping to number five in 2002, its lowest ranking since 1988, Wharton has risen to number three in the 2004Business Week Best Business School Rankings. Behind only Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management (1), and University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business (2), Wharton replaced Harvard at the number three position, with Stanford fourth and Harvard dropping to fifth. The rankings are based on three main categories: feedback from students, feedback from recruiters and the school's "intellectual capacity."
The magazine attributes Wharton's improvement to the hiring of Peter Degnan, who was responsible for the betterment of the career services department, as well as the addition of 23 new faculty members, and "fine-tuning" of the program. In addition, Wharton's Finance and Global Scope departments received #1 rankings.
