U.S. News & World Report rankings
The University of Cincinnati was again named in the Top Tier of the country's "Best National Universities" and moved up six spots to 129th in the 2015 special issue. In the past four years, UC has jumped a remarkable 27 places on the list, from 156, and is now tied with Ohio University, the University of Kentucky, Arizona State, Louisiana State and University of Utah. No other university in the top 130 has jumped as many places in only five years. (2014-15)
Last year, UC also made the list of the top 13 colleges with the best co-op or internship opportunities.
In addition, UC has numerous programs ranked among the top 100 public universities in the nation. Out of the following 41 UC programs and colleges that are nationally ranked, 35 placed in the top 50.
In particular, the MBA program rose a total of 39 spots for its full-time program and 69 spots for its part-time program. Both rankings exemplified the largest increase of any school in the nation, leading U.S. News & World Report to call the UC move "one of the most noteworthy changes" in the most current rankings.
These are the most recent rankings (2014 for online programs and MBA programs; 2013 for most of the other rankings). All categories are not ranked yearly.
