Stevens Emerges as National Leader in Graduate School Rankings

Business School and Schaefer School of Engineering & Science ranked among the best in both nation and state for graduate education

(Hoboken, N.J. – March 30, 2021) – Stevens has continued its rise in graduate education, increasing its overall position and ranking among the top schools in New Jersey for business and engineering master’s programs in the 2022 U.S. News & World Report Graduate Rankings

The university ranked No. 2 in New Jersey and No. 68 overall in the School of Business category, up from No. 77 overall last year. Stevens also ranked No. 3 in New Jersey and No. 79 overall in the School of Engineering & Science category, up from No. 80 overall last year. 

“These rankings demonstrate that Stevens has been able to maintain its momentum in a highly competitive landscape,” said Provost Christophe Pierre, Stevens’ chief academic officer. “We are honored to be featured in these rankings and are proud that all three of our schools that offer graduate programs remain on an upward trajectory. Clearly, students are finding value in Stevens’ premier graduate programs and our technology-focused approach to education.”

Across all graduate school programs, those who enroll with the goal of finding a job have seen exceptional outcomes. At Stevens, 94% of graduate students seeking jobs — including both online and traditional students — secure employment within three months of graduation with an average compensation of $87,320 and average signing bonus of $15,166.

Additionally, Stevens’ location, just across the river from New York City, allows for a feedback loop with business leaders resulting in a dynamic curriculum for MBA students that prepares graduates to meet the needs of top companies. This level of dialogue with industry giants such Verizon, PwC and Bank of America has led to Stevens leading a global initiative,  Management Curriculum for the Digital Era (MaCuDE), which involves more than 80 schools to develop a new management curriculum focused on preparing MBA graduates to work in technology-based, digital environments.

In the recent U.S. News and World Report online graduate education rankings Stevens placed in six disciplines across the School of Business, Schaefer School of Engineering & Science and School of Systems & Enterprises, ranking No. 1 in New Jersey across five of those—Best Online MBA, Best Online Graduate Engineering, Best Online Graduate Computer Information Technology, Best Online Engineering Specialties for Industrial (Systems) Engineering and Best Online MBA Specialties for Business Analytics.
