Five Le Moyne graduate programs – three in the Purcell School of Professional Studies and two in the Madden School of Business - were recognized for their quality by U.S. News & World Reports in its recently released 2023 edition of “Best Graduate Schools.”
The MBA Analytics program moved up two spots to #31 in the national rankings, tied with Cornell and Notre Dame (among others). Le Moyne’s part-time MBA program was nationally ranked for the first time, tying for #169, which followed a #68 ranking for the program in 2021 by Fortune Magazine. Programs in the Purcell School were also ranked: Best Nursing Schools (Masters), which was tied for #143; Physician Assistant Studies at #64; and Occupational Therapy at #141.
“I’m thrilled that we are being recognized for our part-time MBA program, which was totally revamped in 2020 in response to market demand,” said Madden School Dean Jim Joseph, ‘83 “Taken together with Fortune’s recognition, this clearly shows a program on the rise. I’m also proud of the ongoing acknowledgement for the MBA Analytics, which is our fastest growing graduate program.”
“As healthcare in this country continues to face many challenges brought on by the pandemic, I’m proud that Le Moyne is growing its programs to meet the growing demand,” said Purcell School Dean Margaret Wells, Ph.D., R.N., APN- BC, referencing the College’s recent launching of a Doctor of Nursing Practice program. “Healthcare education has been a part of the College’s history since it was founded and the programs recognized by U.S. News build on that rich legacy.”
The U.S. News ranks professional school programs in business, education, engineering, law, medicine and nursing each spring. Rankings are based on expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students.
