Mason was ranked 24th in the category of information technology graduate programs; 39th (tied, and up from 56th in 2018) for non-MBA business graduate programs; 42nd (up from 115th last year) for education graduate programs; and 52nd for engineering graduate programs.

“The rankings demonstrate our faculty’s excellence, as well as Mason’s commitment to delivering high-quality programs in formats that are flexible and convenient,” said Michelle Marks, Mason’s vice president for academic innovation and new ventures. “We continue to develop online learning experiences that are meaningful for our students and enable them to achieve their academic and professional goals.”
