Top 5 Universities Ranked by Employers: 2019-2020

Students always think about which college to go to, usually bringing up Stanford or Berkeley. But do these Ivy League colleges help you to get a job, or just some friendly bragging rights? Here I have looked at a wide variety in universities, deciding which ones helped you to secure a job.

Number 1) Harvard University

Harvard is just one of those colleges. Widely known as one of the best Ivy League universities, it won 2nd place nationally, and is also 2nd in the best value schools. Harvard has terrific programs that (when put on a CV or resume) can help you get a job down. The best of its programs include Biology or biological sciences, history, mathematics, physical sciences, and social sciences. Though while it is a beautiful school, it is also one of the most selective colleges out there. In 2018 they only accepted five percent of applications.

Number 2) California Institute of Technology

The California Institute of Technology was awarded 12th best nationally, and 11th best in value, making it one of the very very good schools. While 12th may not sound significant, it is, because, in the US alone, there are over 5,300 universities. While it is not an Ivy League school, it is still one of the best. Some of the programs it is known for are Biological and biomedical sciences, computer and information sciences and support services, engineering, mathematics and statistics, and physical sciences. The California Institute of Technology still only accepts seven percent of applicants, and it rated as one of the most selective colleges.

Number 3) Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an Ivy League school, more commonly known as MIT. It is ranked as the third best university nationally (tied with University of Columbia), and fourth-best in schools of value. Some of it’s best programs are Biology, chemical engineering, computer sciences, electrical engineering, materials and mechanical engineering, mathematics, and physics. Along with CIT (California Institute of Technology), it only accepts seven percent of applicants. Which makes it one of the most selective schools.

Number 4) Stanford University

Stanford is another one of those schools, that when seen on a resume, is greatly respected. The university stands as sixth-best nationally, and best college for teaching veterans. It is best known for it’s fabulous, engineering, multi/interdisciplinary studies, physical sciences, social sciences programs. While it only selects four percent of applicants, a poll was put out asking how many people would recommend it, and only 89 percent supported it to a friend. All of the other universities scored a 100 percent recommendation, which makes me wonder.

Number 5) Princeton

Princeton is not an Ivy League school but was awarded the best university in the US. It was also awarded the best college for teaching veterans and the best college for teaching undergraduates. Princeton is best known for it’s fabulous biological and biomedical sciences, computer and information sciences, support services, engineering, public administration, social service professions, and social sciences programs. While Princeton has proven to be better than some other schools such as Stanford University, it accepts one percent more applicants – the enrollment of undergraduate students being about 5,428.
