Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine was ranked eighth in the world and third in the US among veterinary schools in the latest global rankings by educational data specialist Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
“At a time when everyone is affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and good news is a hot commodity, our college is particularly proud of the high quality of the education we offer our students,” said Birgit Puschner, Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine. “Our DVM program is a testament not just for our students and educators, but for our entire community – alumni, donors, staff, and our health and research partners – to support us regardless of context or condition.”
The veterinary school’s outstanding ranking continues its upward trend – the university was voted eleventh in 2019 and 2018, twelfth in 2017 and 15th in 2016.
MSU continues to hold first place among the six veterinary schools in the Big Ten, an association of world-class academic institutions sharing a common mission of research, higher education, professional and elementary education, and public service. Six of the 30 veterinary programs in the United States are in the Big Ten.
