BU Moves up in Global Ranking of Clinical, Pre-Clinical, and Health Universities
On the 2013-2014 THE World University Rankings, BU rose seven spots to place #22 out of the top 100 global universities in this field. BU is the 13th highest ranked U.S. school on the list and one of only three New England universities—along with Harvard and Yale—to place in the top 25.
This is especially significant given the caliber of our peers in this category. While we certainly don’t define ourselves by rankings, it is gratifying to continue to be recognized as a global leader in health education, particularly for the high quality of our clinical programs.
This latest ranking reflects an ongoing upward trend for BU and Sargent. In September, BU jumped 10 places to #41 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of the nation’s 1,500 colleges and universities, and now appears on a short list of “Up and Comers.” And in 2012, Sargent programs tracked by US News all ranked in the top 8% of their respective fields. BU also increased its overall 2013-2014 THE ranking, placing 50th out of 400 leading world universities.
THE ranks world class universities across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The clinical and health ranking is based on 13 performance indicators in five areas: teaching, research, citations, industry income, and international outlook.
