U.S. News & World Report magazine’s 2013 graduate-school rankings were released March 13, and once again Santa Clara University’s intellectual-property law and part-time Master of Business Administration programs were ranked among the elites in their field.
According to the rankings, Santa Clara University School of Law’s intellectual-property law program is the sixth best in the country, as classified by faculty at peer institutions in the United States. In addition, the law school continues to be listed among the top 100 accredited law schools in the U.S., based on peer surveys, selectivity factors, placement success, and faculty resources.
The part-time MBA program at the Leavey School of Business was ranked No. 41 in the nation, out of 326 part-time MBA programs, based on peer evaluations and the caliber of entering students.
SCU leaders were pleased, but not surprised, to learn of the graduate programs’ continued strong showing in a national ranking.
“We’re pleased to see that the U.S. News ranking has again placed SCU among the top part-time programs in the nation,” said S. Andrew Starbird, dean of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University. “While no rankings are without flaws, we appreciate being recognized for our innovative programs like entrepreneurship, our high-quality students, our extensive Silicon Valley connections, and the strong reputation of our faculty in areas like behavioral finance, business ethics, and international management.”
