Hi there @19892,

Great question! Each of our rankings has a unique methodology based on factors such as student resources, prestige (if applicable to the major - e.g. business), coursework, and return on investment (student outcomes).

On our blog posts with rankings, we typically provide a breakdown of our methodology so you can know the specifics around how we rank schools for a specific major.

Hope this helps!
