Recently, Forbes magazine published a ranking of the top universities across America. The ranking takes an alternate approach in assessing the top colleges by looking at things from a student viewpoint. The new report gives a fresh perspective in contrast to the standard U.S. News and World Report yearly rankings and gives smaller schools a fighting chance. The research team asked questions such as:
How good will my professors be? Will the school help me achieve notable career success? If I have to borrow to pay for college, how deeply will I go into debt? What are the chances I will graduate in four years? Are students and faculty recognized nationally, or even globally?
When it comes to your school, what is the value of these rankings? What kind of effect does it have on your international student recruitment?
