The ranking methodology weighs five criteria to produce a final score. Teaching (30%) is rated by factors such as reputation surveys and student-to-faculty ratios, while research (30%) and citations (30%) make up the most of the rest of the scoring. The international makeup of the university accounts for 7.5%, while “industry outcomes” accounts for the final 2.5%.
Wayne State University in Detroit is next on the list down in the No. 501-600 range. Oakland University ranks in the No. 801-1000 range, while Grand Valley State University in west Michigan slotted in the No. 1201-1500 range.
