U.S. Declines Across All Metrics In Latest Global Rankings

The United States declines across all metrics despite remaining the world’s pre-eminent higher education system and despite Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) celebrating 11 years as the world’s best university in the latest QS World University Rankings, released recently.

In the top 10 there is a little movement, with the University of Oxford (fourth) dropping two places while the University of Cambridge moves up one place to second. But there are no new entrants.

At the top is MIT (US), followed by the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), Stanford University (US), the University of Oxford (UK), Harvard University (US), the California Institute of Technology (US), Imperial College London (UK), UCL (UK), ETH Zurich (Switzerland) and the University of Chicago (US).


The U.S. continues to decline broadly across its 201 ranked universities with more than 50% dropping down the table – representative of a trend that has persisted for several years due largely to rapidly growing global competition, QS reports.
