Once again, US universities are well represented in the QS World University Rankings, with 157 US institutions of higher learning included in the 2019 rankings. American schools claimed 5 of the top 9 spots, including a repeat sweep of the top four positions.
Here are some of the schools featured in our Top Universities in the USA 2019 infographic:
- The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is once again considered to be the best university in the world for a record-breaking seventh year in a row! MIT scored a perfect 100 on four of the six indicators used to determine this year’s rankings. So yeah, you could say that MIT is pretty good…
- If learning about technology in Massachusetts isn’t quite your speed, how about pursuing your studies in the beautiful San Francisco bay area? Stanford continues to hold serve as the #2 university in the world and is a fantastic place to rub shoulders with some elite entrepreneurs and business leaders.
- It’s pronounced HAH-vuhd. The name alone symbolizes higher education and all that it represents. Harvard still hangs tough at #3 – not too shabby for a school that’s been around for almost 400 years (founded in 1636)! Fun fact: Harvard is located in Cambridge, MA, and it’s within walking distance of MIT. That’s quite a neighborhood for learning!
- And now, back to California. This time we head to Pasadena, home of the #4-ranked university in the world – California Institute of Technology. It’s better known as Caltech, and it’s situated about 11 miles northeast of L.A.
Believe it or not, there are also some great American schools located in places besides Massachusetts and California.
