Several Marquette University graduate programs moved up in U.S. News and World Report’s 2018 Best Graduate School Rankings, released earlier this week.
In the Graduate School of Management, the part-time MBA program moved back into the Top 100 — it is now ranked 92, up 10 spots from last year. The school also continues to have a number of specialty graduate programs ranked in the Top 20: the Executive MBA program was ranked No. 19, down slightly from last year’s No. 16 ranking, and the MBA specialization in operations and supply chain management also moved down marginally from 13 to 17.
The Law School also rose into the Top 100, coming in at an even 100, up from 123 in last year’s list. It, too, has specialty programs in the Top 20: the program in legal writing bumped up one spot to No. 10, and the dispute resolution program held steady at No. 7.
The Opus College of Engineering landed a number of graduate specialty programs in the Top 100: biomedical engineering at 63, environmental engineering at 70, and civil engineering at 94. The college was ranked for its graduate programs overall at No. 133, and graduate specialty programs in computer engineering and electrical engineering were ranked 116 and 124, respectively.
The overall graduate program in College of Education continued its upward trend, hitting 101 — up 14 slots from last year’s 115.
The College of Nursing’s graduate program dropped slightly from 58 last year to 63, and the doctor of nursing practice program went from 38 to 62. This is only the second year U.S. News has ranked DNP programs.
Not all graduate programs are ranked every year by U.S. News. Some — particularly those in the health sciences and science and humanities disciplines — are ranked approximately every three years.
