Florida International University has done nothing but impress the nation recently with their academic endeavors. The school is now ranked 64th according to US News among public schools, and 124th overall including private institutions.
FIU also has a top 10 recognition from Degree Choices, who ranked the school at 8th nationally for return on investment, based on the cost of attending and the earnings a student can expect. Additionally, in June, FIU earned the highest score in the State University System according to the Florida Board of Governors performance-based funding (PBF) metrics.
FIU continues to be on the radar. The Wall Street Journal has placed them as the #4 university in the United States. With FIU Law School, Medical school and various undergraduate programs rising in national rankings, the school as a whole is being recognized for these accomplishments. The College of Public Health and Social Work is 15th in the nation and their law school now belongs to the top 60 JD programs in the nation.
When accounting for non-public schools by the Wall Street Journal, FIU sits at 29th nationally, still putting them above and beyond the vast majority of academic institutions. The rankings were made by The Wall Street Journal and College Pulse, in collaboration with the independent market research firm Statista. The America's Best Colleges 2024 ranking seeks to guide prospective students across the nation while recognizing the colleges doing an outstanding job in higher education.
The US News statistics matter a lot, as the rankings are considered a very objective metric when considering universities across the United States. US News recently placed University of Florida at the #1 public university in the United States of America.
