How to choose the best university in USA: Rankings 2022

How to choose the best university in USA: Rankings 2022

If you thought about going to study in the United States, to get a higher education in America, for sure you faced the question of choosing a university. There are about 4,000 universities in the United States, so the choice between them is not an easy task. Here educational rankings come to the rescue: they include universities that have proven the effectiveness and quality of their education, which are published in prestigious scientific sources and are rightfully proud of the achievements of their graduates.

The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR)

It works with both national and international lists. It is mainly based on the following indicators:

  • Quality of education (how many graduates have received international recognition and awards)
  • Career success of graduates (how many of them took the positions of CEO and similar)
  • Qualification of teachers (how many teachers received international awards)
  • Number of publications and influence of publications in which they appeared
  • Citation of scientific works, Hirsch index
  • Number of international patent applications.

What characteristics does it take as a basis for evaluation?

  • Reputation in the country and in the world
  • Number of published scientific papers and studies
