The U.S. News 2014 Best Graduate Schools rankings list Creighton University's College of Business graduate programs - Finance Program, #18 and Master's in Business Administration (MBA), #50, in its annual rankings. The rankings evaluate more than 1,200 programs in business, law, medicine, engineering, and education - including specialties within each discipline.
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.
"These rankings are another affirmation of the quality and value of a Creighton education and I am pleased that our rankings continue to move upward. The University effectively leverages the expertise of the other eight schools and colleges on campus to provide the best programming possible," said Anthony R. Hendrickson, Ph.D., dean of the College of Business.
The Finance program, already in the top 20, moved up one spot to 18 and the University's MBA program jumped 34 spots.
