Several graduate programs at Le Moyne have been recognized in recently released rankings from U.S. News & World Report. The MBA Analytics program was ranked as #33 nationally, while three programs in the Purcell School of Professional Studies were also ranked: Physician Assistant Studies at #64; Occupational Therapy at #141; and Best Nursing Schools (Masters) at #167.
“Over the past five years, U.S. News & World Report has bestowed national rankings upon several of the Madden School’s undergraduate programs,” said Dean Jim Joseph, ‘83 “This represents the first but certainly not the last national ranking for MBA Analytics, our fastest growing graduate program.”
Joseph credited two business analytics professors - Dr. Furkan Oztanriseven and Dr. Mehmet Kilinc – for their prolific scholarship production combined with their student outcomes that have helped put the program on the national stage. He also acknowledged the role of BNY Mellon’s Innovation Lab, which allows students to work on real business cases and problems with the most advanced data mining software in the world.
Margaret Wells, Ph.D., R.N., APN- BC, dean of the Purcell School of Professional Studies, noted that the recognition builds on the College's long and rich history in health care education. "The fact that three of our programs are nationally ranked - including two that have been in existence for approximately five years - is a tribute to all those whose expertise and hard work has built and maintained excellence for the benefit of our students.”
The U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing each spring. The rankings are based on expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students.
