ASU moves up nearly 30 spots in list of top U.S. institutions

QS World University Rankings has released its list of more than 300 of the top universities in the United States, with Arizona State University moving up nearly 30 spots to No. 62 from last year’s position at No. 91. ASU also ranked No. 1 in the state, ahead of both Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona.

QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) is a leading provider of services, analytics and insight to the global higher education sector. The QS World University Rankings portfolio launched in 2004 and has since grown to become one of the world’s most popular sources of comparative data about university performance. This is the second year for its U.S.-focused rankings, which are based on a methodology that looks at four key indicators: research, learning experience, employability, and diversity and internationalization.

“On behalf of the academic enterprise at ASU, I am proud of our students and faculty, whose scholarship and achievements are critical to our success,” said Executive Vice President and University Provost Mark S. Searle.

“Among the factors considered, ASU scored well on the breadth of our research partners around the world, the number of Fulbright recipients at ASU and the overall academic reputation of the institution. Additionally, ASU has created a student-centered experience that supports the academic goals of an increasingly diverse student body. ASU’s improved ranking is a proof point of our growing global reputation as a top university.”
