What Do Rankings Mean?

Although Boston University School of Management (SMG) enjoys a solid position in all major rankings, these varied assessments are only one measure of a school’s overall quality and reputation.

Therefore, SMG remains committed to what we believe matters even more than the numbers below, however positive they may be: a mission of educating talented leaders who will create value for organizations, their communities, and the world.
