UMD has claimed the top spot on Kiplinger’s list of 30 Best College Values in the Mid-Atlantic. According to Kiplinger’s, these rankings are a companion to the magazine’s annual ranking of Best Values in Public Colleges, which ranked UMD as the 7th best value for 2014. The rankings are also part of Kiplinger’s new interactive college finder tool, which reveals the best college values in each region, best values among different-sized campuses, and best values under $30,000 a year.
The university also made Times Higher Education’s 2014 top 100 World Reputation Rankings list. The World Reputation Rankings recognizes the top 100 global universities, based on the results of the world’s largest invitation-only academic opinion survey, which received 10,536 responses from 133 countries. The survey targets experienced, published scholars, who offer their views on excellence in research and teaching within their disciplines and at institutions with which they are familiar.
