In brief

Hispanic magazine ranks law, Anderson Schools of Management

The School of Law and Robert O. Anderson Graduate Schools of Management (ASM) have been named in the top five in the country in their respective categories for Hispanic students by Hispanic Business magazine.

The School of Law is ranked third, while the ASM Graduate Schools improved two spots from last year and ranked fourth. It’s the fourth consecutive year that Anderson Schools have been ranked in the top 10 by Hispanic Business, and the fourth time in the past five years for the Law School. The Law School ranked even higher last year capturing the number two spot.

The criteria for recognition was based on total graduate and Hispanic enrollment, faculty, student services, retention rate and reputation. The measures were then summed and a rating assigned to each school on the basis of the total score.
