Johns Hopkins University has again been listed among the best universities in the U.S. and the world, according to the latest QS World University Rankings, released today.

Hopkins landed at No. 24 out of 1,000 universities worldwide in rankings compiled by global higher education analysts at Quacquarelli Symonds. Hopkins, ranked No. 21 a year ago, has been among the top 30 universities worldwide since the lists were created in 2004.

The university also was ranked 12th out of 157 U.S. and 183 North American schools.

Schools are ranked by academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, the student-to-faculty ratio, international faculty, and international students. Out of potential scores of 100, JHU scored 88.3 for academic reputation, 81.5 for international students, and 100 for the student-to-faculty ratio.

Last fall, Hopkins was ranked No. 12 in both the U.S. News and World Report global universities rankings and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
