Forbes has ranked Michigan Tech among the best universities in the country. The magazine’s website released its annual list of “America’s Top Colleges” on Thursday, Aug. 15. Forbes said its list of 650 schools represents just 15 percent of the 4,300 degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the U.S. “Appearing here at all is an indication that a school meets a high standard,” Forbes wrote.
In addition to a spot in the top half of the prestigious list, Michigan Tech was ranked in the top 100 public colleges in America and number three in Michigan. Forbes put Tech in the top 60 institutions in the Midwest and among the top 150 research universities.
Earlier this year, Forbes placed Michigan Tech on its list of the “300 Best Value Colleges” in America, number two in Michigan.
