The University of Tulsa’s College of Law and Collins College of Business again are listed among the top 100 graduate schools in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report’s 2016 rankings. This marks the fourth year for the law school and the third year for TU’s business programs to be in the top 100.
The ranking is based on several factors including quality, reputation, placement success and student selectivity. TU also led career performance among 126 ranked business schools, with 100 percent of its full-time MBA alumni reporting employment within three months of graduating in 2014.
“This recognition reflects the commitment of our faculty, students, alumni and corporate partners to position the Collins College of Business as one of the best business schools in the country,” said Dean Gale Sullenberger. “Employers continue to see the benefit of the investments we have made in our graduate business programs over the past eight years, evidenced by the outstanding employment rate of our full-time MBA graduates in 2014.”
Among graduate programs, the Collins College of Business is known for its MBA, Master of Accountancy, MS in Finance and Master of Energy Business, which was recently ranked No. 38 among online graduate business programs by U.S. News and World Report. TU offers both a full-time MBA with generous scholarships averaging $10,000 per semester for outstanding students as well as a flexible evening MBA option for employed professionals.
TU’s College of Law recently announced it would continue the Access to Legal Education Scholarship (ALES) for the 2015-16 academic year. The program awards a renewable $18,000 annual scholarship to first-year College of Law students from a 12-state region. ALES provides entering students access to a TU legal education for less than the cost of attending other private and many public law schools in the region.
