Colleges and universities shape our destinies. Thanks to 30,000 schools of higher learning worldwide, half a billion people have earned a college degree, with the remaining 6.6 billion people on our planet often having to follow their lead.
Thus, if we can determine which schools have most influenced humanity, and if we know in which disciplines and through which scholars they have exerted their influence, we can better understand where our species is headed and to what we may legitimately aspire.
At AcademicInfluence.com, we have cataloged the influencers associated with colleges and universities across numerous disciplines and subdisciplines. Here at Academic Influence News, we explain and justify how our InfluenceRanking™ algorithm measures the degree to which universities, both individually and collectively, influence the world.
We welcome your feedback to our posts at Academic Influence News. We also invite you to learn more about our team and about the calculations that undergird theInfluenceRanking™ and the DesirabilityIndex™.
If you have any questions about the site, or if you would like to obtain raw CSV files of our rankings, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
