U.S. News Ranking Recognizes Creighton University Graduate Programs

The U.S. News 2014 Best Graduate Schools rankings list several of Creighton University's graduate programs in its annual rankings. The rankings evaluate more than 1,200 programs in business, law, medicine, engineering and education?including specialties within each discipline.

Creighton schools and colleges recognized include: 

  • College of Business: MBA, #50 and Finance #18
  • School of Nursing: #64
  • School of Law: #119
  • School of Medicine, Primary Care: #79
  • Pharmacy: #37
  • Physical Therapy: #16
  • Occupational Therapy: #15

Ranking methodologies vary by discipline, but admissions selectivity and expert opinions on program quality are part of the equation for most programs. Job-placement statistics were also used to gauge the effectiveness of business schools and law schools and salary data factored into the business school rankings.

"Although rankings are just one dimension in assessing a school's value, it is testament to the quality and caliber of Creighton students, faculty and the programs we offer when we receive this recognition," said Timothy R. Lannon, S.J. Creighton University president. "At Creighton these programs benefit from an interdisciplinary approach using information, faculty, resources and skills across nine colleges and schools from business, to education, and health sciences," he added.
