The magazine bases its rankings of graduate schools of engineering and business on two types of data: reputational surveys of deans and other academic officials, and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students.
The US News & World Report rankings come on the heels of the annual world university rankings released by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), which has ranked MIT as the No. 1 university in the world for 10 straight years.
