FIU’s International MBA program at FIU Business remains among the country's top-ranked programs, coming in at No. 2 among public universities, according to U.S. News and World Report rankings released Tuesday.

Graduate programs in the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Robert Stempel College of Public Health and Social Work, Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs and the College of Law also were in the top 50 among public universities in U.S. News & World Report's 2024-2025 edition of Best Graduate Schools.

Among public universities, the nursing master’s program ranked No. 21, the Doctor of Nursing Practice program ranked No. 30, the nursing anesthesia program ranked No. 33, and the occupational therapy program ranked No. 48.

Public health ranked No. 35 among public schools.

Green School programs that did well among public universities include global policy at No. 2, homeland security at No. 8, public finance at No. 18, public affairs at No. 38 and local government management at No. 15. The previously unranked urban policy program ranked No.16.

Nationally, FIU Law ranked No. 68 (No. 37 among public universities). Its part-time law program was ranked No. 28 (No. 11 among public universities), the international law program was ranked No. 45 (No. 18 among public universities), and the trial advocacy program was ranked No. 52 (No. 18 among public universities). The college also ranked No. 71 in legal writing (No. 36 among public universities), and No. 94 (No. 49 among public universities) in environmental law.

“FIU’s ongoing rise reaffirms our dedication to excellence and impact,” said FIU Provost, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Elizbeth M. Béjar. “These rankings prove our commitment to equipping our graduates as leaders in education, research and innovation.”

The new rankings join FIU’s recent accolades:

The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education designates FIU as an “R1” research university, the highest category of doctoral-granting institutions, puts FIU among the top 3% of the nation’s 4,300 colleges and universities with more than $317 million in research expenditures annually.

U.S. News & World Report has been providing education rankings, which are used by parents and students to select schools, since 1983.
