One Class of 2015 student at top ranked University of Washington, Seattle wrote, “The first thing every faculty and staff member in my program has said is, ‘We are here to help you; this is going to be a lot of hard work, but we are here for you,’ and that makes all the difference in the world to me. Graduate school is never going to be easy and it shouldn’t be, but having that support structure is what makes this a great program.”

Students can continue to review their programs at and qualify to win a $1,000 scholarship, awarded once per semester. Reviews will be incorporated into upcoming program rankings.

METHODOLOGY reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms. All business school rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012 until April 15, 2014. assigns 15 ranking categories to each graduate program at each graduate school. Rankings cover a variety of student topics, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid, and quality of network.

For a given graduate program, rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. These scores are then compared across all ranked schools for that program and are translated into a final ranking for that graduate program, i.e., medicine. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that graduate program.
