Eight Programs Ranked in U.S. News Best Graduate Schools Guide

U.S. News & World Report ranked eight University of Dayton programs among the top in the nation in its latest guide on "The Best Graduate Schools."

The 2020 edition features the University's education, engineering, master's in public administration and part-time MBA programs. Within engineering, it also highlights the electrical, materials, aerospace and mechanical engineering programs. Notably, the University tied for the top spot among Catholic institutions and 47th overall for graduate engineering with the University of Notre Dame.

The rankings — a resource widely used by prospective students considering graduate school — are based on “two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students,” according to U.S. News.
