Emory is officially one of the best universities in the world

Don’t act like you’re not impressed

Emory has ranked #79 on CWUR’s list of the top 1000 universities worldwide.

As a groundbreaking medical research center and as one of the top colleges in the growing East Coast hub that is Atlanta, it’s no surprise to see Emory rising through the ranks to beat out long-time rival Georgia Tech at #86 and fellow Georgia college University of Georgia at #204.

CWUR ranked these universities based on “Quality of Education”, which was reflected in the number of international prizes presented to university alumni, “Alumni Employment,” which counted how many alumni “have held CEO positions at the world’s top companies relative to the university’s size”, “Quality of Faculty, measured by the number of academics who have won major international awards, prizes, and medals”, the number of research papers the universities were able to place in “reputable or highly influential journals” (Publications and Influence), the number of citations their papers received, and by their “broad impact” and the number of patents the universities held.

According to these guidelines, Harvard University is the best university to attend in the world… but in the end, no awards or CEOS can hold a candle to the quality education and the awesome students that Emory has to offer!
