The top choice for a high-value master’s in industrial/organizational psychology is offered at Salem State University. Salem offers the only I/O psychology program in the Boston area. The curriculum follows SIOP guidelines and places a strong emphasis on quantitative research. Courses come from both science and business with additional course offerings in HR and organizational development. All students complete a 300-clock hour internship that gives students practical experience in areas like personnel testing and corporate performance. Full-time students can complete their degree in about two years while part-time students typically finish in three to four years.

I think it will be very ideal to follow this ranking based on students' perceptions. Using student perceptions in graduate rankings can be particularly valuable for both the prospective students and the graduate programs that serve them. In terms of the prospective students, as mentioned, information gathering about programs prior to making a significant life commitment is natural, yet limited comparative information is available that reflects the student experience in programs.

Note that, an industrial-organizational psychology master's degree is a major investment of time and money. Factors to consider when selecting schools include the program's quality and curriculum, admissions requirements, cost and financial aid, structure and schedule (especially if you plan to work while studying), and student-to-faculty ratio.

I wish you the best!
