A Rating of Graduate and Professional Degree Programs in American and International Universities
Why do thousands of professional education counselors and college administrators depend on The Gourman Report?
It is the standard system of rating graduate programs.
Only The Gourman Report assigns a precise numerical score in assessing the strengths and shortcomings of the top programs in 105 disciplines.
It reflects thorough evaluations of graduate programs' effectiveness.
Among the major factors that influence a program's or a school's rating are the caliber of its faculty and facilities and the breadth of its curriculum. The Gourman Report also studies the hundreds of other critical considerations that affect the quality of education.
It constantly reexamines programs and updates its ratings.
The ratings in The Gourman Report reflect the constant changes that take place at institutions of higher education. Increases or decreases in funding, shifts in curriculum, and modifications to research facilities all affect the quality of a program or school. The process of thorough, ongoing reassessment makes The Gourman Report the most authoritative, accurate, and up-to-date book of its kind.
