‘Tis the season for college rankings. The Wall Street Journal has released its annual college ranking. And while no college ranking is as significant as that of US News & World Report (have a look at our take on the Malcolm Gladwell Revisionist History episodes on the magazine’s ranking), every college admissions czar at elite universities will do a little happy dance if they perform well in other important college rankings — including The Wall Street Journal‘s. So which universities ranked well in the 2022 Wall Street Journal / Times Higher Education college ranking list?
Taking home the grand prize is Harvard University. Princeton University claims the runner-up position. Rounding out the top ten are the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (#3), Yale University (#4), Duke University (#5), Brown University (#6), the California Institute of Technology (#7), Princeton University (#8), Johns Hopkins University (#9), and Northwestern University (#9). Next comes Cornell University (#11), the University of Pennsylvania (#12), Dartmouth College (#13), the University of Chicago (#14), Vanderbilt University (#15), Columbia University (#16), Washington University in St. Louis (#17), Rice University (#18), the University of Southern California (#19), and Emory University (#20).
So while Princeton may claim the grand prize year after year in the US News & World Report college ranking, it’s Harvard that claims the WSJ/THE college ranking grand prize, a title it has claimed many times in the past.
