UT Shines in U.S. News’ Grad School Rankings


With an enrollment of more than 11,000 students, UT’s Graduate School is one of the biggest in the country. And if you put any stock in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings, it’s one of the best, too.

U.S. News’ latest graduate school rankings, released today, include more than 50 UT programs in the top 15 nationally. The numbers mostly held steady from last year, without any dramatic shifts up or down. The McCombs School of Business’ accounting program also holds the distinction of being the only UT graduate program ranked first in the nation.

The rankings are compiled using surveys of deans, program directors, and senior faculty, as well as measures such as average salaries, GRE and LSAT scores, and employment rates. You can read more about U.S. News’ methodology, which differs by grad program, here.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • Engineering—10th (5th among public universities)
  • Law—15th (4th among publics)
  • Education—10th (3rd among publics)
  • Nursing—13th (5th among publics)
  • Business—17th (5th among publics)

See the full rankings over at the U.S. News & World Report website.
