"We are pleased to be included in the rankings and will continue to innovate to enhance the value we provide to students and employers."

According to U.S. News & World Report, the Best Graduate Schools 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.
