Texas A&M is officially in the top one percent of universities in the world

We’re 43 in the country

As if we needed reminding how great A&M is, we have officially been declared as one of the top 1 percent of universities in the world.

The study, which judged the top 1000 universities across the world, placed A&M 160th. There are an estimated 26,000 universities of the world.

Also coming in at 43rd in the nation, we beat schools like UVA and Georgetown University. What’s more, we were just two places below Ivy League school, Dartmouth.

We were also rated 22nd for Agriculture and Forestry, and 13th for Hospitality and Leisure Management.

At the top of the table, MIT retained the top spot, followed closely by Stanford and Harvard.  Stanford overtook the University of Cambridge into second place and in doing so, it means that the United States holds all of the top-three places for the first time since the inaugural rankings of 2004.
