A recent U.S. News & World Report analysis determined that Maryville University is the No. 1 over-performing university in the country.
Experts at U.S. News & World Report looked at data from the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2013, then took peer assessment and compared it to actual rankings. Maryville University’s performance is 87 places above its peer assessments.
Maryville University President Mark Lombardi said the report enhances the value of all Maryville University degrees. “This shows we are doing outstanding work for our students inside and outside the classroom and reminds us that in higher education great reputation lags behind great performance,” Lombardi said. “Studies such as this one communicate to parents, students, other universities and prospective employers of our graduates that Maryville University exemplifies a daily commitment to excellence.”
Maryville entered the National Universities category of U.S. News & World Report rankings in 2012. It is one of only three St. Louis institutions that are ranked. The others are Washington University and Saint Louis University. Maryville is also highly ranked by Forbes and Kiplinger’s as a best value.
