      Do you have the link? U.S. News usually has BYU in the 70’s in national rankings and Utah around 100-120. So I’m surprised by this. (also US News rankings are kinda trash). I’ve seen other international rankings where Utah is in the top 100 globally. All this comes down to how one values a University. If the ranking is weighted towards research pretty heavily Utah will be higher, BYU will be lower. But undoubtedly BYU is an excellent university, despite our disdain towards it. They just focus more undergraduate, Business and Law.

        Eh, be careful with that one. It really depends on what field we’re talking about. Obviously every university has fields they excel at and others where they’re not as highly regarded, but BYU-Provo Campus has maybe some of the wildest swings in higher ed.

        For example, their accounting and business programs are among the top in the country. But beware of their science programs. There are a considerable number of employers out there who will not consider graduates from any BYU school for scientific positions because of what they teach/don’t teach.

        Also, their long-standing issues with academic freedom and AUP censuring alone probably disqualify them from being considered an “excellent” university.

          Yeah, that’s how every school is. It’s not like Utah has great programs in everything. BYU is still an excellent university. If you want to go into Business or Law or be an entrepreneur BYU is one of the best schools in the nation. If you want to study medicine, engineering, sciences and do research go to Utah.
