University of Split Ranks Higher than University of Zagreb

The state's flagship university is tied for 46th among all schools, a two-spot drop from past year.

The rankings focus on student outcomes - including graduation and retention rates - which carry the most weight at 30 percent.

The ranking signifies the most innovative improvements in curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities, and it's is based on nominations by college presidents, provosts and admissions deans within their category.

Disclosure: The University of Texas at Austin, Baylor University, Texas Tech University, Texas A&M; University, the University of Texas at Dallas, Southern Methodist University and Rice University have been financial supporters of The Texas Tribune.

The University of SC ranked No. 1 in global business programs.

The AFA also was singled out for Best Civil Engineering Program among public schools, second-best aerospace/aeronautical/astronautical program, tied for fourth best in electrical/electronic communications and ranked fifth best in mechanical engineering. In 2015, the college ranked No. 61. LSU remains the highest ranked public university in Louisiana.

By some measures, the U.S. News rankings "create incentives for schools to favor wealthier students over less wealthy applicants", Politico reports, after comparing the U.S. News rankings to another school report card from the Equality of Opportunity Project.

The other top schools include Harvard University (No. 2); University of Chicago and Yale University (No. 3, tie); Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute and Stanford University (No. 5, tie).

"We always appreciate education leaders across the country recognizing HPU for distinction", HPU President Nido Qubein said. Universities wait for the report every year, with some adjusting strategic plans to achieve the goal of climbing in the rankings, according to Politico.

TCNJ also ranked as the top university for veterans in the region and second in the region for Best Undergraduate Teaching.

This fall, HPU opens Congdon Hall, the university's single largest investment in history at $120 million. "It's reflected in this recognition and it is gratifying that Clemson has been ranked among the top 25 public schools for 10 years in a row".

Those schools must offer a range of undergraduate majors, master's and doctorial programs to be considered.
