U.S. News annually produces rankings in education, business, law and medicine that are based on formulas that consider reputation surveys, selectivity, research funding and productivity, outcomes for graduates and other factors. Specialties in the schools are evaluated through surveys of deans, program directors and faculty. Other programs are typically ranked once every four years.
