The University of Arizona was ranked No. 52 out of 18,000 higher education institutions around the world, according to the latest from the Center for World University Rankings.
The UA gained 23 spots over last year, putting the school in the top 0.28 percent globally.
Nationally, the UA ranked No. 34.
“This is a fantastic reflection of the incredible talent we have here,” said UA President Robert Robbins in a prepared statement. “Our faculty’s commitment to groundbreaking research strengthens our position as becoming a global leader in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
But what sets the Center for World University Ranking system apart from others is that it looks beyond faculty output, performance and reputation. It is the only global university ranking system that measures the quality of student education.
