Northwestern University School of Law CourtyardHere in Illinois, we mean business—and engineering, and law.

U.S. News & World Report released its latest graduate school rankings, which rated Illinois business, law and engineering programs among the best in the country.

In the magazine’s ranking of business schools, two Illinois institutions share the #3 spot: Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. Both schools have consistently ranked among the top five business programs in the U.S.

 Among law programs, the University of Chicago Law School and the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law also made it into the top ten at #5 and #9, respectively. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s graduate engineering program was ranked tenth in the country.

The schools were chosen based on their postgraduate employment statistics, average test scores and GPAs, and more. Illinois institutions also made the list for best medical, nursing and education programs.

Rankings aren’t the only thing that matters, but it’s always an honor to see Illinois schools recognized for their hard work and dedication to our students.
