Fairfield Grad Programs Among Nations Best, says U.S. News and World Report

Graduate programs in Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business and the Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies have been named among the best in the nation according to the annual “Best Graduate Schools” ranking from U.S. News and World Report.

The Egan School’s Master of Science in Nursing program was named among the Top 100 in the country.

School rankings were determined, in part, by voting from peer institutions and were based on factors such as faculty resources, research activity, awarded grants and student selectivity.

The Dolan School of Business graduate programs in accounting, marketing and finance were once again named among the top in the nation. And for the first time, the Information Systems & Operations Management department was named among the Top 20 in the country. The University’s part-time MBA ranking jumped 29 spots and into the Top 100.

The Egan School’s programs use the latest medical equipment and small classroom settings while offering students a strong liberal arts education, a theory-based knowledge and the skills to work in the expanding fields of nursing and healthcare, including a new program in palliative care.

The Dolan School offers a variety of strong undergraduate programs to satisfy all business interests, including accounting, finance, information systems and operations management, international business, management and marketing. Business studies reflect the 500-year-old Jesuit tradition of academic rigor and personal reflection, which aims to provide an understanding of the larger ethical, moral and global context of life and work.
