Best Fashion Programs in Wisconsin

Written by FS StaffAugust 14, 2013

To determine which fashion schools are indeed the Best, college ranking agencies may evaluate a schools program offerings, faculty resources, graduation and retention rates, financial resources, and student selectivity. Peer assessment may be important as well. After evaluating these areas, college ranking organizations such as U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and Princeton Review will tally the school’s score to determine if it deserves a spot in the rankings. A number of Wisconsin schools often make the cut.

University of Wisconsin-Madison is listed at number 68 on Forbes America's Top Colleges (2013) and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee made the list as well.
