Marquette University, 2017

This September, U.S. News & World Report released its annual rankings of the best colleges and universities in the United States. Midwest Jesuit institutions were featured prominently on the list.

Of the approximately 1,900 four-year colleges and universities nationwide ranked by U.S. News, only 389 (or about 20 percent) are classified as National Universities. These universities are recognized by U.S. News for offering a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master’s and doctoral programs, as well as for producing groundbreaking research.

Marquette was ranked #88 in national universities and #18 in best undergraduate teaching.

Creighton University and Loyola University tied for #112 among national universities. Additionally, Creighton’s Heider College of Business was ranked nationally with the finance program at #14, and the accounting program ranked at #25.

For regional rankings, U.S. News & World Report considers factors including graduation and retention rates, undergraduate academic reputation, social mobility, and student selectivity. Among regional master’s universities in the Midwest, John Carroll University was ranked #2 overall, as well as #1 in best colleges for veterans and #3 in best undergraduate teaching. Xavier University was ranked #5 overall, #3 in best colleges for veterans, and #5 in best undergraduate teaching.
