U.S. News Ranks Tippie Graduate Programs among Top 50 in Nation
Each year, U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, and medicine. These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research, and students. The data come from surveys of administrators at more than 1,200 programs and some 13,000 academics and professionals, conducted during the fall of 2011 and early 2012.
In addition to the five professional disciplines ranked annually, U.S. News periodically ranks programs in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, the health arena, and many other areas based solely on the ratings of academic experts.
Highlights of the rankings will be published in the America’s Best Graduate Schools 2013 guidebook, which goes on sale April 3.
The following Tippie programs are included in the 2013 rankings. Rankings with an asterisk (*) are new; the other is from previous years but still stands.
#32 Business specialty - Accounting *
#34 Economics, doctorate
#34 Part-time MBA Program (MBA-PM Program) *
#49 Business School (Full-time MBA Program) *
