Quinnipiac continues to be ranked among the best national colleges and universities in the country by leading organizations, including U.S. News & World Report and the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education.

In rankings released earlier this month by US News & World Report, some of Quinnipiac’s rankings include:

  • the top 45 best value schools in the United States

  • the top 75 undergraduate engineering programs in the United States

  • the top 21% of undergraduate nursing programs in the United States

  • the top 28% of undergraduate business programs in the United States

U.S. News & World Report degree-granting institutions on a range of quantifiable measures of academic quality, including, but not limited to, graduation rate performance; social mobility; graduation and retention rates; graduate indebtedness; faculty resources; class size; academic reputation; financial resources per student on instruction; research, student services and related educational expenditures; student excellence and alumni giving.

“Quinnipiac has prepared me so well for success,” said Paige Meyer ’19, MBA ’20, who currently works as an advertising sales associate in New York. “The opportunities I had as part of Quinnipiac University in Los Angeles — interning at the Los Angeles Times and KTLA Channel 5 News — as well as executive producer at Q30-TV News helped me build a strong foundation for future success.”

In addition to the U.S. News & World Report rankings, the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education ranked Quinnipiac among the top colleges and universities in the country — both national and regional. Quinnipiac scored particularly high in terms of graduation rate and value added to graduates’ salary; financial resources per student; faculty per student; student engagement; student recommendations and faculty/staff interactions with students.

“These rankings demonstrate Quinnipiac’s clear commitment to academic excellence,” said Provost Debra Liebowitz. “Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to help prepare our students for the careers of tomorrow through hands-on, experiential learning and as the rankings show, these opportunities continue to yield impressive results for our students.”

Education at Quinnipiac occurs well beyond the classroom — into virtually every aspect of the college experience, said Chief Experience Officer Tom Ellett.

“We are proud to partner with our students in developing a robust student-focused experience,” said Ellett. “At Quinnipiac, we are committed to developing and growing the full student — and providing the opportunities needed for their success from day one.”
