NEW: Brown Lowest-Ranked Ivy League School in Top Colleges List

Monday, November 28, 2011

 

The reception was a little chilly for Brown with Business Insider readers

A brand-new ranking of America's Best Colleges by Business Insider puts Brown University in a Top 20 spot, but at the bottom of the Ivy League.

The popular business and finance Web site polled 1,273 Business Insider readers to rank 70 top schools based on "one thing that matters: how much a college will help you have a successful career." Business Insider asked its readers to assess criteria on whether a college:

  • Taught students to be independent thinkers who know how to express themselves
  • Granted an impressive degree
  • Connected students to an influential alumni network.


Responding to those criteria, Business Insider readers put the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at the #1 position, followed by California powerhouse Stanford University at #2.

Brown: last of the Ivies

Brown took the #15 slot in the just-released listing, giving way to every other Ivy League School: Harvard (#3), Princeton (#4), Yale (#5), Columbia (#7), Dartmouth (#8), University of Pennsylvania (#9), and Cornell (#10).

Also weighing in ahead of Brown in the ranking was the California Institute of Technology (#6), the University of Chicago (#11), Duke (#12), Johns Hopkins (#13) and University of California-Berkeley (#14).

Other New England colleges making the Top 50 included Amherst College (#22), Williams College (#26), Boston College (#33), Tufts (#37), Middlebury (#39), Wellesley (#42), Bowdoin (#44) and Wesleyan (#47).
