LinkedIn University Rankings – Because We Need More?

LinkedIn University Rankings – Based on career outcomes | LinkedIn.

I would argue that this is something else that the world doesn’t need. “Best Colleges” as ranked by numbers of people who are on LinkedIn. So, type of education doesn’t matter; depth of education doesn’t matter; deep thought doesn’t matter, only numbers matter.

Another set of bogus rankings? Really?

Gotcha.

So, all of the large universities are the best, right? Because they have the largest numbers of graduates?

Those of you who are going to/have graduated from small privates, smaller public universities, Ivy League schools, polytechnics and the like, where do you fit in? Nowhere, I suppose.

A former boss told me — many, many times — that college rankings are “junk science.” He was right.
