Practice : Spring 2012
The Boston Architectura l College is pleased to announc e that DesignIntelligence ha s ranked the BAC Master of Interior Design a nd Bachelor of Interior Design progra ms within the top 10, at number 5 and 3 respectively. Within the Regional Rankings, the BAC is listed as a top 10 school in the East. Regiona l Rankings include the input of practicing professiona ls from firms who weigh in on schools that are not necessarily within their own region. President Ted La ndsmark comments, “O ver 80% of our graduates over the pa st few years have already been employed in the design profession s when they graduated, because they are well prepared for the respon sibilities and challenges now facing practitioners. The educ ation of emerging professiona ls now requires inter-disciplinary knowledge of how clients’ needs ca n best be met, a nd our graduates are confident that they can meet these needs and serve society wel l into the f uture.” Each y ea r, DesignIntelligence, a nd the Greenway Group ma nagement con sulta nts, conduct an exhaustive review and analysis of a rchitecture a nd design schools to uncover the level s of exc ellenc e that are being delivered in higher educ ation today, a nd publish the results a nnua lly in America’s Best Architecture & Design Schools. The re sea rch, c onducted mid-2011, ranks undergraduate and graduate programs from the perspective of leading practitioners who have direct experience hiring and supervising the performance of recent graduates . In addition to leading practitio- ners from top national firms, Deans and Chairs of 3 academic progra ms and 2300 students were surveyed, with data presented separately from the practitioner ra nkings. Additiona l issues were queried, such a s how progra ms rate in teaching various skills. 2 012 DesignIntelligence Rankings: Master and Bachelor of Interior Design Programs in Top Five BAC named a top school in the east.
