Both BYU Campuses Advance In US News Rankings

PROVO, UTAH -- Both BYU's main campus in Provo and BYU-Hawaii in Laie, Hawaii advanced in US News &World Reports' annual survey of US colleges. BYU advanced in the "National Universities" category, ranking 78th out of the 228 universities in the category, up from 80th last year. And BYU-Hawaii ranked 11th among "Western Liberal Arts Colleges," up from 14th last year.

Overall, BYU's main campus scored well, recording its best ranking in its accounting program, which is ranked 6th in the nation. Its undergraduate business school also ranked well, at 38th in a three-way tie with Tulane University and Virginia Tech. The general management program in the school of business ranked 36th. The undergraduate engineering program also was noticed by the magazine, ranking 86th, in a tie with seven other universities.

BYU-Hawaii is included in the Western Liberal Arts Colleges with 61 other schools in sixteen Western US states. The number 11 ranking puts BYU-Hawaii in the magazine's top tier of liberal arts colleges in those states.

The two other LDS Church-owned institutions of higher education, Ricks College (soon to be BYU-Idaho) and the LDS Business College, were not included because the rankings were limited to four-year institutions. Ricks was listed (but not ranked) as a community college. However, as Ricks College makes the transition to a four-year campus of BYU, it will begin to be ranked by US News and World Report.
