Princeton beats Yale and Cornell again in new university rankings
Princeton comes in at 13th overall
New QS World University Rankings for 2018 have been released, ranking Princeton University in 13th.
We have fallen two places since last year, but we still rank above Yale, Cornell, Columbia, Penn, Duke, John Hopkins, Berkeley, Dartmouth, and Brown.
The only Ivy League school ahead of us is Harvard. Plus only five of the schools that are ahead of us are in the USA. Plus, Dartmouth came in all the way at 169th.
The QS World University Rankings bases their scores on the expert opinions of 75,015 academics and 40,455 employers, also analyzing institutional research impact. It’s known as the definitive guide of global university rankings.
Numerous other colleges continue to rank lower as there is more competition internationally which makes it harder for US institutions to attract international faculty and students.
According to Top Universities, “21 of the top 50 universities in the US & Canada have fallen down the ranking since last year.”
