New Ranking: Ga. Tech’s Business School Jumps Seven Slots; Engineering Programs Continue to Excel

The Georgia Institute of Technology’s College of Engineering was ranked No. 4 nationwide for the fifth consecutive year in the U.S. News and World Report’s annual list of the best American graduate school programs.

The most notable change in the 2010 graduate rankings comes from the College of Management, which jumped to No. 22 from 29 last year in the highly competitive business schools rankings.

“These rankings underscore the national and global excellence of our graduate programs,“ said Georgia Tech President G.P.”Bud” Peterson. “Our students and faculty, and the state of Georgia will continue to be beneficiaries of the many high- caliber programs and outstanding graduates that we provide.”

In addition to having one of the nation’s top graduate engineering programs, 10 of Georgia Tech’s 11 programs ranked in the top 10 including industrial (No.1), biomedical (No. 2), aerospace (No. 4), civil (No. 6), electrical (No. 6), computer (No. 7), and materials (No. 8). Of particular note, three programs moved up in the rankings: environmental engineering (No.5), mechanical engineering (No. 6), and nuclear engineering (No. 8).

Moving up to the 22 slot (7 among public universities), Georgia Tech’s College of Management tied with Emory University in the ranking of full-time MBA programs.
