Brigham Young University's business and law schools are again among the top 50 in the United States, reports U.S. News & World Report in its latest annual edition of "Best Graduate Schools.” Other BYU graduate programs and specialties rank in the top 100 in their categories.

The Marriott School of Management is ranked 32nd, up one spot from last year, while the J. Reuben Clark Law School stayed at 42nd. In a ranking new this year, the Law School jumps up 10 spots to 32nd when ranked by law firm recruiters.

In specialty rankings, the Marriott School ranks 7th in accounting and 24th in entrepreneurship. Dean Gary Cornia of the Marriott School of Management weighed in on this year’s rankings:

“We are grateful for this acknowledgment of our fine students,” Cornia said. “Our students have the skills, convictions and commitments to add value to businesses and strengthen society as a whole. I pay tribute to the terrific faculty and staff that have helped to sharpen the students’ knowledge and prepare them for the adventures ahead.”
