Texas A&M: Texas A&M Fares Well In World Rankings List

Texas A&M University is ranked No. 41 nationally and No. 74 overall among the top 2,000 schools worldwide in the latest World University Rankings.

The list compiled by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) annually ranks the world’s best schools. It surveys almost 20,000 schools and then narrows the list to the top 2,000.

Texas A&M joins Vanderbilt (No. 53) as the only two Southeastern Conference schools that place in the top 75 CWUR rankings.

The Center for World University Rankings is a leading consulting organization providing policy advice, strategic insights and consulting services to governments and universities to improve educational and research outcomes.

Since 2012, CWUR has published the only academic ranking of global universities that assesses the quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, and research performance without relying on surveys and university data submissions

CWUR uses several objective indicators grouped into four areas to rank the world’s universities. They include:

1) Quality of education, measured by the number of a university’s alumni who have won major academic distinctions relative to the university’s size (25%)

2) Alumni employment, measured by the number of a university’s alumni who have held top executive positions at the world’s largest companies relative to the university’s size (25%)

3) Quality of faculty, measured by the number of faculty members who have won major academic distinctions (10%)

4) Research performance as measured by:

Research output, measured by the total number of research articles (10%)
High-quality publications, measured by the number of research articles appearing in top-tier journals (10%)
Influence, measured by the number of research articles appearing in highly-influential journals (10%)
Citations, measured by the number of highly-cited research articles (10%)
In other similar recent rankings, Texas A&M has been listed among the nation’s best.

MONEY magazine has ranked Texas A&M as the top university in Texas and No. 11 overall in the country. The magazine also ranks Texas A&M as No. 5 in its best public schools list, which tops all Texas schools.

In other rankings, Texas A&M is ranked No. 12 overall and No. 4 among public universities in the United States by Washington Monthly magazine in its annual college rankings. Texas A&M is the only school in Texas ranked among the top 70 in the publication’s national rankings, and is the highest ranked Southeastern Conference school.

Also, Texas A&M is ranked No. 2 among Southern schools in Washington Monthly’s “Best Bang For The Buck” category of how well a college helps non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.

Texas A&M remains the only public college in Texas to make the “Best Buys” list in the 2021 Fiske Guide to Colleges, a listing that cites the best colleges that offer a superior education for the most affordable cost.

In addition, Texas A&M has impressive listings in U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 Best Graduate School Rankings, with the College of Engineering, School of Law, Mays Business School, Bush School of Government and Public Service, and others faring well in the prestigious rankings.
