World University Rankings 2024 by subject: business and economics

The business and economics subject table uses the same trusted and rigorous performance indicators as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2024, but the methodology has been recalibrated to suit the individual fields.

The ranking assesses universities by their performance in the following disciplines: business and management, accounting and finance, and economics and econometrics.

This year’s table includes 909 universities, up from 870 last year.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University hold on to the top two spots, as they did last year. China’s Peking University moves up five places to 10th position and is the only new entrant in the top 10.

Meanwhile, the US’ Cornell University is the only new addition to the top 20.

The top 50 sees the highest representation from the US (19). The UK’s institutions are next in line with six, but China follows closely with five institutions.

Fudan University, which ranks joint 42nd, is the country’s newest addition to this group.

Prince Sultan University in Saudi Arabia and Quaid-i-Azam in Pakistan, in the 301-400 band, are the highest-ranking new entrants in this table.
