Tulane University once again ranked among the nation’s top universities in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, which were released Monday.
The annual rankings listed Tulane as 44th among the “Best National Universities” and also placed its undergraduate business school 44th among the nation’s “Best Undergraduate Business Programs.” In addition, Tulane ranked 19th among “Best Colleges for Veterans.” In the “High School Counselors Rankings” category Tulane was 40th.
“These rankings reflect the success of our extraordinary learning experience, which enhances our students’ capability to deal with complex, real-world problems, emphasizes meaningful collaboration across fields of knowledge and inspires innovative research and public service,” Tulane President Mike Fitts said.
A few weeks ago, The Princeton Review listed Tulane in 1st place for “Best College City,” 2nd for students “Most Engaged in Community Service,” 4th in the “Happiest Students” category and “Their Students Love These Colleges” list, 5th for “Best Quality of Life” and 8th for “Best-Run Colleges.”
These rankings follow another record-breaking fundraising year by Tulane. And, this fall a dynamic new leadership team, including four new deans, welcomed the university’s most academically qualified and diverse first-year class ever.

Tulane is also undergoing tremendous physical improvements with the opening of Mussafer Hall, a one-stop shop for advising, career services and success coaching, and construction of the Commons, which will house 77,000 square feet of classrooms, offices and a new dining facility.
