Each year, US News & World Report publishes their Higher Education rankings. Using peer reviews and other techniques, they seek to help students narrow down their search for the perfect school. Purdue ABE has been ranked #1 in undergraduate schools for 8 consecutive years (2012-2019 – rankings released each Fall) and our graduate program returned to the top spot this year after a brief stay tied for #2 (following an 8-year run at the top spot - 2009-2016 – rankings released each Spring).
