Emory ranked seventeenth among 248 national universities in this year’s U.S. News & World Report college quality rankings. Goizueta Business School was twelfth in the rankings of undergraduate business programs.

“Rankings tell one story about the success of an institution in fulfilling its goals and objectives,” says Provost Earl Lewis. “The work and accomplishments of its students, faculty, and staff are the true measure, however. Emory is committed to investing strategic resources that enable our faculty and students to make an impact in the Atlanta community, in higher education, and in the world.”

Emory moved up one in the rankings from last year’s tie at the eighteenth spot with Vanderbilt University. Princeton remained first in the rankings, followed by Harvard and Yale. The University ranked fifteenth in student selectivity, tenth in faculty resources, twelfth in alumni giving (with an average of 37 percent of alumni contributing), and seventeenth in overall financial resources; and received a 4.0 out of 5 in academic reputation. Emory also was ranked seventeenth among universities offering the best value, and was cited for its economic diversity, with 12 percent of undergraduates receiving need-based Pell grants.
