Emory Ranked No. 20 by US News & World Report

Emory has been ranked No. 20 among the nation’s top universities in the new 2014 Best Colleges guidebook from US News & World Report.

Emory was listed as No. 19 among national universities offering the “best value” to students based on a combination of academic quality and the average level of need-based financial aid. The university also was cited for its socio-economic diversity.

Goizueta Business School, which is ranked separately from the university’s main undergraduate program based on a peer survey of deans and senior faculty, was No. 13 in the undergraduate business rankings.

Emory has done well in a variety of national surveys that convey aspects of the university’s identity, from the strength of its academic programs to the quality of faculty research to the value of an Emory education and residential experience for students and their families.

The university has been cited in recent months as one of the world’s top research universities (Leiden Ranking), having one of the best college libraries (Princeton Review), being among the greenest campuses (Sierra Club), being a best value among private universities (Kiplinger’s Personal Finance), and as a top university contributing to the public good (Washington Monthly).

“Emory’s eminent faculty, engaged scholars, and diverse and rich academic environment have established Emory as a leading center of discovery, teaching, and learning,” says Claire Sterk, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “External recognition is gratifying, but our focus continues to be on providing the best possible academic experience for our students.”
