Whether it's preparing students for their first jobs or propelling graduate and professional students to even greater heights, a Marquette education helps students reach their full potential. But don't just take our word for it.
Marquette ranks 83rd in the 2013 edition of America's Best Colleges, released by U.S. News & World Report. The university is again among the "A+ Options for B Students" and is one of only 50 universities recognized in the "Best Value Schools" category, which relates a school’s academic quality, as indicated by its 2013 U.S. News ranking, to the 2012–13 net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.
In other rankings, The Princeton Review named Marquette one of the country's "Best 376 Colleges" for 2012 and included the university as one of eight Wisconsin institutions of higher education on the "2013 Guide to 322 Green Colleges," produced in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council.
Additionally, the Fiske Guide to Colleges named the university a "Best Buy School," one of only 49 in its 2012 edition; Kiplinger’s Personal Finance listed it among its "Best Values in Private Colleges for 2011–12"; and Washington Monthly ranked it 32nd nationally in 2010 based on its contribution to the public good.
Speaking of the public good, Marquette was the 10th higher education institution bestowed the Changemaker Campus title by the Ashoka Institute, a leader in social entrepreneurship — the practice of applying sustainable business models to solve social problems.
