Each year the rankings include programs in business, law, education, engineering and medicine, and for the first time this year, expanded rankings of master’s programs in nursing. The rankings in these six areas 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. The data come from surveys of administrators at nearly 1,900 graduate programs and more than 13,700 academics and professionals in the disciplines, conducted during the fall of 2014 and in early 2015.
