UNO ranks 633rd in the world and 181st in the nation, according to the 2016 edition of the rankings. Only two Louisiana universities rank higher than UNO—LSU and Tulane.

The Center for World University Rankings publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students, as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions. The center uses eight objective indicators to rank the world’s top 1,000 universities: quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents.
In addition to providing consultation for governments and universities, the Center for World University Rankings aims to provide the most comprehensive university rankings available, which are trusted by students, academics, university administrators and government officials from around the world.
