POTSDAM – The latest college rankings are out, and Clarkson University is again in the top tier of national universities, with a ranking of 121 in U.S. News & World Report’s "Best Colleges."

And the Potsdam technical university’s supply-chain management program ranks in the top 20 in the country.

Clarkson remains on the magazine’s "Great Schools at Great Prices" list (Best Value Schools, #33), which takes into account a school's academic quality, as judged by its 2014 U.S. News Best Colleges ranking, and the 2012-2013 net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.

The survey editors also placed Clarkson University in the "A+ Options for B Students" list, which they identify as strongly rated schools that accept “nonsuperstars” who have potential and will work hard.

Clarkson's Supply Chain Management program was listed among the 20 best in the nation for the 12th consecutive year, ranked number 18 in Supply Chain Management/Logistics. Clarkson is among four private institutions in the ranking, which also includes MIT, Carnegie Mellon, and the University of Pennsylvania.

U.S. News also lists Clarkson as number one in the nation for graduates with the most internship experience and in the nation's top-12 for its online graduate business programs.

Each year U.S. News surveys nearly 1,400 accredited four-year institutions for their annual “Best Colleges” issue. Schools in the "National Universities" category, like Clarkson, offer a full range of undergraduate majors, master's, and doctoral degrees. These colleges also are committed to producing ground-breaking research.
