U.S. News & World Report, publisher of the Best Colleges rankings, today released highlights of the 2015 Best Graduate Schools online at www.usnews.com/grad. The 2015 edition includes rankings for five of the largest professional graduate school disciplines – business, law, education, engineering and medicine – as well as specialty rankings within each discipline.
This year, the Wharton School of Business at University of Pennsylvania climbed from third place to tie with Harvard University and Stanford University as the best full-time MBA programs in the country. Among part-time MBA programs, the Haas School of Business at University of California—Berkeley came in at No. 1.
In the law school rankings, Yale University and Harvard once again claimed the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. For the first time since the 2010 edition of Best Graduate Schools, Duke University’s School of Law joined the top 10 schools, sharing the No. 10 spot with University of Michigan—Ann Arbor. In a repeat from last year, Harvard is the No. 1 medical school for research, with Stanford following at No. 2.
“A graduate degree is a major investment of both time and money,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer of U.S. News & World Report. “Our Best Graduate Schools rankings are designed to help prospective students research and identify the right programs to pursue in their field of interest.”
Graduate schools in the five main disciplines ranked annually are evaluated on standardized test scores of newly enrolled students, expert opinions on program quality, acceptance rates and many other criteria. Because each graduate program is different, the rankings methodology varies across disciplines.
