Rankings

Forbes and US News provide rankings to the universities, which are trusted everywhere. But this is applicable only if the universities are located in the US. The ranking of a university is an important parameter by which a prospective student can decide whether they wish to take admission or not. Generally, the ranking of a university is considered a great way to gauge its performance on several factors, which include research excellence, the performance of the students after they complete their education, student experience, and most importantly academic success. The rankings by two well-known publications, US News and Forbes, are considered trustworthy by applicants and academic experts. However, it is to be noted that Binghamton University does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest ranking by these publications.
