Emory Ranked among Top 20 by US News

Emory has been ranked 20th among the nation’s top universities in the new 2017 Best Colleges guidebook from US News & World Report.

“Emory is consistently recognized in national surveys for our world-class faculty, vibrant scholars, and diverse and rich academic environment,” says Stuart Zola, interim provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “While external recognition is gratifying, our focus continues to be on providing the best possible experience for our students.”

In addition, Emory was listed as 17th 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 was cited for its economic diversity, with 21 percent of its undergraduates receiving need-based Pell Grants, and among schools with the largest percentage of international undergraduates at 17 percent.

Emory also was ranked 11th among national universities that are the “best colleges for veterans.” 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 15th in the undergraduate business rankings.
