Using new criteria in 2018-2019, the rankings are based on hiring professionals’ perceptions of most admired programs, the programs from which they hire the most graduates and how recent graduates are performing in 12 key focus areas.  The report ranks architecture, interior architecture and landscape architecture schools.

This marks the fourth time the college has been ranked by DesignIntelligence in recent years.
