BYU business and law schools both among Top 40, U.S. News says

Other BYU grad programs rank well too

Rankings Highlights

  • Business School: #34
  • Law School: #39
  • Law School (by recruiters): #32
  • Business (accounting): #9
  • Business (entrepreneurship): #21

Brigham Young University’s law and business schools are both among the Top 40 in the country, according to the latest U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings, released today.

The J. Reuben Clark Law School is ranked 39th, jumping three spots from last year’s rankings, while the Marriott School of Management is ranked 34th. Other BYU graduate programs and specialties rank in the top 100 of their categories.

"We appreciate the recognition these rankings give to our students and the quality of the education they receive," said Gary Cornia, dean of the Marriott School of Management. "Our students and graduates are helping to build a strong reputation around the world for their leadership, honesty and tremendous ability.”

In specialty graduate rankings, the Marriott School ranked 9th in accounting and 21st in entrepreneurship while the MPA program ranked 59th. The law school also retained its ranking of 32nd overall when ranked by law firm recruiters – a ranking that was done in 2011.

“We are pleased to be recognized among the top quarter of law schools in the country," said Jim Rasband, dean of the law school. “As in years past, the strength of our students’ entering credentials and their impressive record of success on the bar exam are particularly noteworthy.”

In other specialty rankings, the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology is ranked 62nd in mechanical engineering, 68th in civil engineering and 81st in chemical engineering. BYU’s speech-language pathology program, housed in the McKay School of Education, is also ranked 62nd.

The rankings come from data from annual surveys of more than 1,200 programs nationwide.

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 opinion about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students. The magazine also ranks programs in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and many other areas based solely on the ratings of academic experts.
