Haslam’s Supply Chain Grad Programs Jump Three Spots to 4th in U.S. News Rankings

March 12, 2019

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s Haslam College of Business has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as No. 4 among public business schools for supply chain management. The rankings increase, which reflects the college’s graduate programs in supply chain management, represents a rise of three places over last year. The program ranks at No. 5 nationally, a five-place rise over last year. 

“We’re encouraged to see that our U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools specialty ranking is catching up to several of our more industry-specific rankings, such as that of Gartner, which places our supply chain graduate program at No. 2 nationally,” says Chad Autry, head of the Department of Supply Chain Management and FedEx Corporation Endowed Professor of Supply Chain. “Haslam graduate students benefit from deep faculty experience gained over 25 years of research, teaching, and industry outreach in the field of supply chain. The discipline has grown and changed tremendously during that time, and we’re proud of the role we are continuing to play in shaping it.”

The college’s position in the 2020 U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools MBA ranking is 29 among public universities and 54th nationwide. The rankings are established using two factors: expert opinion and statistical information. All data used comes from institutional surveys of more than 2,000 programs and reputation surveys completed by more than 22,000 academics and professionals. In the MBA discipline, U.S. News and World Report took into account for the first time this year students’ GRE analytical writing scores.

The U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools rankings were released today, March 12. They cover the fields of education, engineering, health specialties, medicine, nursing, law, business, and public affairs.

Other rankings in which Haslam’s supply chain program appears include: Transportation Journal at first worldwide, Industry Week at third nationally, and SCM World at third globally.
