Manhattan College continued to rank among the nation’s top colleges and universities this past year in terms of academic quality, return on investment, value of degrees earned and graduates’ average income. Job placement, retention rates and the transformative power of a Lasallian Catholic education also testified to the enduring value of life and learning at the Riverdale campus.
Manhattan ranks first among the most transformative colleges in America, according to Money magazine’s 2019 listing of Best Colleges for Your Money. The ranking uses a unique value-added analysis to identify colleges that excel at helping students perform better than they would at peer institutions.
In U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 college rankings, Manhattan jumped to 13th place among the 179 Best Regional Universities in the northern United States — up from 15th place last year.
The College’s undergraduate programs in its School of Engineering and O’Malley School of Business also earned praise. For example, Manhattan ties for 38th place nationwide in the Best Undergraduate Engineering Program category among schools that do not grant doctorates.
For the fifth consecutive year, Viqtory — an online service for U.S. veterans — ranks Manhattan among America’s most Military Friendly Schools. The 2019–20 edition places us in its silver category, the top 20% of colleges and universities that have made the listing.
U.S. News & World Report also notes the College’s commitment to student veterans. Manhattan ranked seventh among 53 of the best colleges and universities for veterans in the northern United States.
