George Mason University continues to climb the list in the Center for World University Rankings, landing at No. 397 in the 2016 survey of 1,000 universities.
In 2014, George Mason was ranked 434 among the 25,000 universities around the world considered for the ranking. In 2015, Mason was ranked 414.
Since 2012 the center, based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has “measured the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research,” according to its website. The center conducts its own research and does not rely on surveys or data from the universities.
Criteria for the ranking include quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and the number of international patent filings.
