The Wall Street Journal has recognized Bryant University as one of the top 7 percent of higher education institutions in the nation, according to its annual America’s Best Colleges 2024 rankings published September 6.

In addition to Bryant’s overall ranking, which ascended 116 spots from 227 in 2022 to 111 in 2024, the Wall Street Journal ranked the university 54th in the nation for salary outcomes. 

The prestigious list, produced by the Journal in collaboration with research partners College Pulse and Statista, is determined by student and alumni feedback and outcome metrics including the earning potential of graduates, the level of student debt, and the cost of attendance. 

“The Wall Street Journal rankings reflect Bryant’s commitment to academic excellence and return on higher education investment,” says President Ross Gittell, Ph.D. “Our university’s reputation is built on stellar outcomes, and we’re proud to deliver an education that prepares our students to succeed in a quickly changing world. Through our commitment to economic mobility as part of the Vision 2030 strategic plan, these outcomes will reach more talented, driven students than ever.”

The Wall Street Journal accolades come on the heels of new 2024 rankings from the Princeton Review, which recognized Bryant as one of the best schools in the Northeast and placed the institution in the top 25 in three new categories: Best College Library, Most Active Student Government, and Students Love Their School Teams.
