Among public universities, MU was recently named the No. 13 Best College for Future Leaders by Time magazine. The inaugural list was assembled by analyzing where 2,000 of the most influential leaders in U.S. business, government and society received their degrees. This strong ranking shows the incredible impact of a Mizzou education, the proven success of our alumni and the great return on investment for MU graduates.

In addition to educating and training the next generation of leaders, we’re proud of our record 76% graduation rate, 91.3% retention rate and 95.4% successful outcome rate for new graduates. Thanks to our commitment to student success, MU was also named the seventh best value of all flagship universities by U.S. News & World Report.

Our national reputation reflects that Mizzou is a member of the AAU, one of America’s leading research institutions and we prepare students to advance our state and society.
