The folks at U.S. News & World Report released their latest round of graduate school rankings this week and BYU's law and business schools once again showed well.
The J. Reuben Clark Law School continued its upward trend in the rankings, jumping up to No. 34 among law schools, while BYU's MBA program came in at No. 33 among business schools.
Dean of BYU Law Jim Rasband was grateful to see the recognition and noted that the ranking reflects that the law school continues to attract some of the most highly qualified students in the country. "The students have always been the crown jewel of the law school," he said.
"U.S. News alone does not capture all that we are striving to accomplish at BYU Law School," Rasband added. "No ranking can do that."
In other graduate school rankings, BYU's McKay School of Education was listed as a top 100 program (No. 88) and the Marriott School's accounting specialty ranked No. 6.
"We appreciate the recognition these rankings bring to the Marriott School's MBA Program," said Lee Perry, dean of the Marriott School of Management. "We're both humbled and proud of what everyone associated with the Marriott School is doing to make a positive difference around the world."
U.S. News & World Report will release their updated undergraduate rankings in the fall.
