University of Detroit Mercy earns top ten graduate school ranking in 2018 U.S. News survey
University of Detroit Mercy’s Nurse Anesthesia program ranked the 10th best and the MBA program ranked among the top 20 graduate Management programs in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s “2018 Best Graduate Schools.” The list was released today in the magazine’s “2018 Best Graduate Schools” magazine. This is the College of Business Administration’s third consecutive year for this high honor.
Additionally, the University was awarded top-tier rankings for Best Nursing Schools: Master’s, Physician Assistant, Clinical Psychology and Doctor of Nurse Practice.
Graduate schools are evaluated on criteria such as grade point averages of incoming students, acceptance rates and employment outcomes of graduates. The rankings methodology varies across disciplines to account for differences in each graduate program. The nursing school rankings, for example, include the percentage of faculty members still actively working in hospitals and other medical settings, while business schools are evaluated by how corporate recruiters rate MBA program.
“These high recognitions of our graduate programs again by U.S. News confirm our reputation as one of America’s leading Midwest universities,” said University President Antoine M. Garibaldi, Ph.D., “and it is a special tribute to the faculty who teach in these programs.”
“This award is a strong affirmation of the quality and value of the Detroit Mercy experience for current students and a significant factor for prospective students to consider when choosing a university,” he added.
Since 1877, the University has offered students a value-centered and student-focused approach to learning, empowering them to develop themselves intellectually, professionally, personally, spiritually, ethically and socially. As a University firmly grounded in the Catholic traditions of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits) and the Sisters of Mercy, Detroit Mercy’s commitment to a holistic approach to teaching, learning and serving student’ needs is constantly evident, inside and outside the classroom.
