MIT is No. 1 in QS World University Rankings for the 7th year in a row

MIT No. 1 in the QS World University Rankings

MIT has been honored with 12 No. 1 subject rankings in the QS World University Rankings for 2018. This is the seventh straight year that the Institute has earned the top spot.

Subject areas in which we earned a No. 1 ranking include architecture and built environment, chemical engineering, computer science, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering, and statistics and operational research. The Institute was also highly ranked in subjects such as art and design (No. 4), accounting and finance (No. 2), business and management studies (No. 4), and economics and econometrics (No. 2).

London-based Quacquarelli Symonds Limited publishes annual world university rankings by subject. These rankings are designed to help prospective students find the leading schools in their field of interest and cover a total of 48 disciplines. Rankings are based on an institute’s research quality and accomplishments, academic reputation, and graduate employment.

How does MIT rank on your list?

MIT and MIT Sloan are often at the top of university rankings, and we are happy to carry the torch. However, these accolades are not how we measure our impact in the world. At MIT Sloan Executive Education, the voices of our participants are what matter. We are inspired and motivated by the firsthand accounts of participants as they apply the insights and methods they learn in our programs to solve real challenges at their organization. You can find many participant viewpoints on this blog, or visit our site to read what some of our Executive Certificate holders have to say about their MIT Sloan experience and the impact of their learnings.

The perspectives of our participants continually inform the content we offer. Our evolving portfolio of more than 50 courses is designed around the challenges our global participants face. Our newest courses provide the latest faculty research and insights to help our participants stay ahead in a rapidly changing world.

Our 100% unedited participant program reviews also offer executives an opportunity to hear directly from their peers. You’ll find firsthand feedback, testimonials, and course ratings on each program web page.

We hope you will join us for a program soon—on campus or online—and share your feedback with us.
