University of Arkansas-Fayetteville Receives More First-Class Recognition

The U of A has just been recognized as being among the top public law schools in the country according to the U.S. News and World Report 2012 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools. In ranking the School of Law, U. S. News methodology included a peer assessment score as well as assessments by lawyers and judges. Other factors included student/faculty ratio, post-graduation employment rates, and bar exam passage rates.

And the recognition was not limited to the law school. The full-time Master of Business Administration program in the Walton College at U of A was also ranked high, as was the part-time MBA program. Both full-time and part-time programs are listed in the top tier of their categories nationally: full-time program ranked 51st and the part-time program ranked 50th among both private and public institutions.

U.S. News went on to rank U of A’s rehabilitation counseling program in the College of Education and Health Professions as among the top 22 nationally. Specifically, it ranked as #14 among public universities and #16 when private universities are included in the tally.

The industrial engineering graduate program of College of Engineering was also ranked high - 25th among all graduate programs in the country. When compared only with other public universities, its ranking moves up to #18.

All this means that, again, U of A is recognized as top-notch. It’s heartening to see the high quality faculty and students recognized for their hard work and that work translates to meeting the economic, social and education needs of Arkansas at the highest level.
