Interior Design Ranked 6th in the Nation
November 23, 2009 —
We're incredibly proud that the prestigious journal DesignIntelligence, published by the Design Futures Council, now ranks Drexel University's Interior Design programs among the top ten in the nation. The undergraduate Interior Design program is now ranked 6th in the nation up from 10th in 2008, while the graduate Interior Design program moved to 9th after it was ranked 13th in 2008. These upward rankings continue to spotlight Drexel as a university moving ahead nationally—US News & World Reports recently listed Drexel as one of five Up-and-Coming Schools.
DesignIntelligence is the Design Futures Council's bi-monthly "Report on the Future" publication and the repository of a vast wealth of timely articles, original research and industry news. In 1993, a network of 26 regional and national design firms began sharing ideas, benchmarks and proprietary financial analyses with one another, shaping today's DesignIntelligence. We congratulate Rena Cumby, Associate Department Head for Architecture & Interiors; Ada Tremonte, Associate Director, undergraduate Interior Design Program; Karen Pelzer, Associate Director, graduate Interior Architecture & Design; and their fellow faculty in the program.
