Emory University has been ranked 21st among the nation’s top universities in the new 2018 Best Colleges guidebook from U.S. News & World Report.

“Emory’s students are drawn to the university’s combination of groundbreaking research and academic excellence in the liberal arts,” says Dwight A. McBride, provost and executive vice president of academic affairs. “While external recognition is gratifying, we continue to be most inspired by our community of students, faculty, scholars, and researchers who are creating and applying knowledge in the service of humanity”

Emory was listed as 17th among national universities offering the “best value” to students based on a combination of academic quality and the average level of need-based financial aid. The university was cited for its economic diversity, with 23 percent of its undergraduates receiving need-based Pell Grants, and among schools with the largest percentage of international undergraduates at 16 percent.

Emory's Goizueta Business School, which is ranked separately from the university’s main undergraduate program based on a peer survey of deans and senior faculty, was 15th in the undergraduate business rankings.

Emory has been cited as one of the world's top research universities (Leiden Ranking), among the best for student financial aid (Princeton Review) and being a best value among private universities (Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Princeton Review).
