The University of Texas is in the midst of cultural reckoning, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the prestige of its education. This year UT was again one of the best universities in the world.
The Center for World University Rankings, a political consultation organization based in the United Arab Emirates, released its ranking for 2020-21 earlier this month. Since 2012, more than 20,000 universities and colleges have been analyzed to identify the 2,000 world leaders.
UT’s flagship university was named 33rd best college in the world and 21st in the US. UT took 7th place among the public universities in the country.
Although UT Austin is down two places from last year, it still ranks higher than Dartmouth University, Brown University, Sorbonne University, University of Southern California, and University of Virginia.
To determine a school’s rank, CWUR takes seven factors into account:
Alumni employment rates
Influence and Quotes
“The University of Texas at Austin is recognized for the exceptional talent of its faculty and students. This ranking reflects their immense skills, imagination and creativity, and the positive impact they have on the world,” said Jay Hartzell, interim president by UT Austin in a publication.
“But we’re not done yet – not even anywhere. This great university has not yet reached its full potential and I look forward to working with our students, faculties, and staff to find ways to build on our strengths, increase our impact, and achieve more to help us make ours State, our nation and our country can serve society at the highest level. “
The best university in the world and the USA was Harvard University. The University of California at Berkeley was named the No. 1 Public University.
University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (No. 53); Texas A&M, College Station (No. 73); and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (No. 99) also ranked in the top 100.
