The University of Michigan is ranked No. 20 in the world, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019, up one spot from last year.
The annual list ranks the top 200 universities worldwide, and is based on 13 performance indicators separated into five categories: teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook.
U-M is one of only three public institutions in the U.S. in the top 20. The others are University of California, Berkeley (15) and UC, Los Angeles (17).
The London-based higher education magazine worked with Thomson Reuters to produce “World University Rankings 2018-2019.”
The ranking is one of two released annually by Times Higher Education. Earlier this year, U-M was ranked 15th in the organization’s annual Reputation Rankings, which are based on results from an invitation-only survey of scholars from around the world.
