A subscription is required to access all of the data.

Each year, U.S.News ranks professional-school programs in business, education, engineering, law and medicine. These rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students. The data come from surveys of administrators at more than 1,200 programs and some 13,000 academics and professionals, conducted during the fall of 2010 and early 2011.

In addition to the five professional disciplines ranked annually, U.S.News periodically ranks programs in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, the health arena, and many other areas based solely on the ratings of academic experts.

U.S.News first published a reputation-only graduate school ranking in 1987. The annual America's Best Graduate Schools report began in 1990.
