The value of your UB degree keeps appreciating! In August Kiplinger’s “Best College Values” list for 2019 was released and UB was ranked 61st among public colleges for in-state students and 56th for out of state students. Similarly, in September 2019 the US News and World Report rated UB number 31 on its ranking of the best national universities. This is an improvement of 10 spots over last year, and over the past dozen years, UB has improved 42 spots in these rankings. Finally, the Center for World University Rankings placed UB 59th among US public universities, and 269 among 20,000 universities worldwide.
