Pardee RAND Graduate School tracks the success of our students in several ways. A key factor is the graduation rate: what percentage of enrolled students eventually graduate. Another important metric for the effectiveness of the Pardee RAND Graduate School Ph.D. program is progress toward graduation or time to completion.
We believe a good test of our educational effectiveness is to let the market tell us how well we are doing. Our students subject their work to that "market test" when they submit their work to journals for publication or when they submit papers and posters for consideration for presentation at conferences. In both cases, we have seen impressive success.
One final indication that our graduates are leaving Pardee RAND Graduate School with the knowledge and skills that we desire them to obtain is demonstrated by their job market performance.
