In addition to rating their respective programs, students often post comments regarding their experiences. One Class of 2015 student earning her graduate degree from Lamar University online wrote: “My career as an international teacher takes me around the world, so being able to get my graduate degree while traveling is a complete blessing.”

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

METHODOLOGY

Graduateprograms.com reaches current and recent graduate students through scholarship entries as well as social media platforms. These program rankings cover a period from September 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013. Graduateprograms.com 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., business and management. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed for that graduate program.
