U.S. News and World Report released its annual ranking of graduate schools this week, naming more than a dozen San Diego State University graduate programs among the nation’s best.
SDSU’s graduate business program ranked 86th in the nation, putting it in the top 50 for public business schools and in the top 10 in California.
