Information and Law rank among nation's best graduate programs”

SOLES' top-tier ranking has continued to rise over the past several years, reaching 89th, up from last year's 93 in the 2018 U.S. News and World "Best Graduate Education Programs" report.

The increase was fueled primarily by a significant increase in the number of students employed at graduation and those employed three months after graduation.

U-M officials note that rankings are just one measure of an academic program. These efforts are paying off. Its full-time program at IU Bloomington is ranked 21st overall, and its part-time Evening MBA program at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis is ranked 11th.

The percentage of graduates employed at graduation rose 32.6 percentage points, and the percentage of graduates employed three months after graduation jumped 11.2 percentage points.
