Johns Hopkins University named among the best.

This year's QS World University Ranking results have been released, and Johns Hopkins University earned spots as the 12th best in the United States and 24th overall in the world. 

Higher education analysts at Quacquarelli Symonds rank schools in several respects, including postgraduate employer reputation (10%), citations per faculty (20%), academic reputation (40%), student-to-faculty ratios (20%), the number of international faculty (5%), and the number of international students (5%). Based on a scale of 100, JHU scored highly – 81.5 for international students, 88.3 for academic reputation, and 100 on the student-to-faculty score. 

In all, data was gathered from 1,000 universities worldwide, 183 of which were North American schools. The results are consistent with rankings from both U.S. News & World Report and Times Higher Education where just last year, JHU earned 12th best in the U.S. 

Since the QS World University Ranking was established in 2004, JHU has consistently been in the top 30 worldwide.
