Grad Programs Rank Among the Nation's Elite

Nine Specialty Areas in Business, Engineering and Psychology Place in the Top 10

Carnegie Mellon University's graduate schools once again rank among the nation's elite in U.S. News & World Report magazine's "America's Best Graduate Schools."

The magazine, which recently released the results of its 2006 survey, annually polls academic leaders and corporate recruiters from across the country to rank graduate programs in business, engineering, law, education and medicine.

Carnegie Mellon's graduate program in engineering ranked 9th overall and this year's ratings marked the first time that four engineering specialty programs ranked in the top 10. Computer Engineering was 4th, Environmental Engineering 8th, Electrical Engineering 8th and Mechanical Engineering 10th.

Among graduate business programs, the Tepper School ranked 17th overall, 2nd in Production/Operations Management, 2nd in Information Systems and 7th in Supply Chain/Logistics.

Graduate programs in the humanities and social sciences were ranked this year as well. The university's psychology program ranked 9th overall, and in specialty areas was rated 2nd in Cognitive Psychology and 5th in Experimental Psychology.

Other programs, like those in the fine arts, public policy, science and computer science, are not ranked annually by U.S. News & World Report and were not included in its 2006 survey.
