Yeshiva University (YU) has been consistently making strides in student quality, academic excellence, and diversity of programs and research over the past decade. YU is now ranked along with Columbia and NYU as the top universities in the metropolitan area.
YU is ranked as #40 in the most challenging category—national research doctoral universities, which has Harvard at the top followed by Princeton and Yale. This is the eighth consecutive year that YU has been in the top tier of national universities.
“We are gratified that Yeshiva University is again ranked among the top universities in the nation,” said President Richard M. Joel. “The quality of our students, faculty, programs in medicine, law, social work, psychology, and education as well as our undergraduate and Jewish studies is on the ascendancy. In no small way, our ranking underscores the critical importance of scholarship.”
Factors that account for YU’s strong ranking include high SAT scores, faculty resources and faculty to student ratios, small class size, significant science and medicine research funding, and sound financial resources.
