Emory: Top 20
U.S. News ranks University programs
Emory University is among the top twenty national universities in U.S. News & World Report’s annual “America’s Best Colleges,” ranking 17th.
Goizueta Business School ranked 13th in undergraduate business programs.
“While external recognition is gratifying, the true measure of a university is revealed in the work of its faculty, staff, and students,” says Provost Earl Lewis.
Emory’s rankings on the survey’s components included 12th in faculty resources, derived mainly from faculty compensation and class size; 11th in the “Top Up-and-Coming Schools,” a list of colleges and universities singled out in a survey of experts as having recently made the most promising and innovative changes; and 6th in economic diversity, with 14 percent of undergraduates receiving need-based Pell grants.
Emory ranked 12th in alumni giving, with an average of 37 percent of alumni contributing to the school during a two-year period.
