Several Marquette University graduate programs moved up in U.S. News and World Report’s 2019 Best Graduate School Rankings, released last week.
The College of Education made a marked move up on the list, landing at No. 75 — it was ranked 101 last year. This continues an upward trend for the college, which has moved 40 places over the past two years.
In the Graduate School of Management, the part-time MBA program moved up to No. 70, up from 92 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. 13, up from last year’s No. 19 ranking, and the graduate program in accounting is ranked No. 19.
The Law School moved up slightly to 95 from last year’s 100. It, too, has specialty programs in the Top 20: the program in legal writing is ranked No. 11 and the dispute resolution program is No. 6.
The Opus College of Engineering landed graduate specialty programs in the Top 100: biomedical engineering at 59 (up from 63) and environmental engineering at 69 (up from 70). The college was ranked for its graduate programs overall at No. 127, up from last year’s 133.
The College of Nursing’s graduate program moved down to No. 82 from last year’s 63, and the doctor of nursing practice program went from 62 to 66. This is only the third 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.
