UWM ranks in top 3.1% of universities in the world

UW-Milwaukee once again ranks among the top universities in the world, according to the annual listing from the Center for World University Rankings.

UWM landed at No. 631 out of 20,966 ranked universities worldwide, placing it among the top 3.1%.

Only three other universities in Wisconsin made the center’s Global 2,000 list, with only the Medical College of Wisconsin and UW-Madison ranking higher.

The Center for World University Rankings uses seven objective and outcome-based indicators to compile its list. Half of a university’s ranking score is determined by the academic and professional success of its alumni. The rest is determined by the quality and quantity of the university’s research output and the academic distinctions of its faculty.

The Center for World University Rankings is a consulting organization that provides policy advice, strategic insights and consulting services to governments and universities to improve educational and research outcomes.
