The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth ranked 128th, dropping from 98th, for its graduate nursing program. Similar to last year, Roger Williams University’s graduate law school was not ranked but instead was recognized in a “second tier” of schools to consider.

The 2017 Best Graduate Schools rankings features information and rankings for the largest professional graduate school disciplines – business, law, education, engineering, medicine and nursing – as well as specialty rankings within each discipline.

“Going to graduate school is a major commitment of time and money,” said Anita Narayan, managing editor of education at U.S. News. “Our rankings and advice offer guidance throughout the decision-making process to help prospective students and their families find the right fit.”

In the full-time MBA rankings, Harvard University is the No. 1 program in the country. The University of Chicago Booth moves up two places to tie with Stanford University at No. 2. The top law schools remain consistent, with Yale University ranked No. 1. Harvard University and Stanford University again tied for No. 2.

Harvard remains the No. 1 medical school for research, followed by Stanford University at No. 2.

New this year, U.S. News evaluated Doctor of Nursing Practice programs, ranking the University of Washington at No. 1.
