Graduate Studies and Experience
After a sharp decline in total graduate enrollment (FTE) in Fall 2018, enrollment increased 5% in Fall 2019 to 2,848 due to the implementation of aggressive recruitment strategies and partnerships with international universities. Stevens’ standing in well-recognized rankings was realized, including moving up 20 places to #83 in the Best Graduate Business (MBA) Schools ranking and holding steady at #75 for Best Graduate Engineering Schools. Selectivity remained at 60% in Fall 2019 from Fall 2018, and the quantitative GRE scores for entering engineering graduate students decreased slightly from 161 in Fall 2018 to 160 in Fall 2019. Numerous new initiatives to strengthen support and community for graduate students were continued and augmented. There were significant increases in Stevens’ online rankings (#8 in Computer Information Technology, #14 in Business (non-MBA), #22 in Engineering, and #45 for MBA programs).
