Texas A&M Listed Among Top 100 “Most Powerful Global University Brands” By British Magazine

Texas A&M University is included in a list of the top 100 “most powerful global university brands” compiled by The Times Higher Education, a London-based magazine.

The Times Higher Education’s “World Reputation Rankings” employ the world's largest “invitation-only academic opinion survey to provide the definitive list of the top 100 most powerful global university brands,” according to a posting on the publication’s website, with a notation that the list is a spin-off of the annual “World University Rankings.”

The 2013 rankings are based on the judgments of “senior, published academics” garnered through 16,639 survey responses, according to the site, which includes a notation that “a university's brand can be important in luring both professors and students.”

The University of Texas at Austin also is included in the magazine’s listings, which are topped by Harvard University.

This is the latest in a series of rankings and ratings in which Texas A&M is prominently noted, university officials pointed out. Most of the other surveys that feature Texas A&M focused on “best values” coupled with high-quality academic programs and research and service benefiting the nation.
