US News (USN) has released data, analysed by Robert Morse and Diane Tolis, showing how efficiently colleges and universities use their financial resources. The methodology is to divide the total score in the America’s Best Colleges rankings by the money spent per student. Top of the list among national universities was Miami University in Ohio which spent $383.66 per student for each point on the best colleges rankings.
The purpose of the IREG Ranking Audit, conducted by independent experts, is to verify and attest that ranking under review is done professionally, with a transparent methodology, observes good practices and responds to a need for relevant information of various stakeholders, in particular students, higher education institutions, employers and policy makers.
National and international academic rankings play ever increasing role as a barometer of quality of higher education institutions. The purpose of "IREG Inventory of National Rankings" is to collect and make available on the IREG Observatory website information on the current state and scope of this important group of rankings.
