MIT has a 3-Peat as the Top University Brand; College Rankings from the Consumers’ Point of View

Top 400 US College and University Brands for 2014, 9th Edition, by the Global Language Monitor

Methodology:  For this analysis, the Global Language Monitor used its proprietary Brand Affiliation Index (BAI), the same technology used to measure global brand equity for the Olympics, World Cup, the Fortune 500, and others.  This exclusive, GLM longitudinal-study encompasses the prior three years to better assess short-term velocity and longer-term momentum.  The study is a Big Data textual analysis based on billions of webpages, millions of blogs, the top 375,000 global print and electronic media, and new social media formats as they appear.  This is the ninth edition of the survey since it first appeared in 2008.

MIT is the Top University Brand for the Third Year Running

West Point is the Top College Division Brand

Austin, Texas, August 12, 2014  – MIT is the Top US University Brand for the Third Year Running according to the Top 400 US College and University Brands for 2014, 9th Edition, to be released later this week by the Global Language Monitor.  Harvard, which placed No. 2 to MIT for the third straight year, had rejected the idea of adding a ‘trade school’ in the mid-nineteenth century.  That trade school would one day become the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Following MIT and Harvard were the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Chicago; and the University of Texas, Austin.  Rounding out the Top Ten were the University of California at Los Angeles; the University of California, Davis, Stanford University, New York University, and Northwestern.
.
The University of California, Berkeley took top public university honors,  again.  Some 13 of the Top 25 are now private universities, reversing the score from 2013.
Biggest Movers in the Top Twenty-Five were Dartmouth (+55), Northwestern (+24), and Washington University in St. Louis U (+22).   The biggest positive movement in the last three analyses was made by the University of Minnesota (+57).  Editor’s Note:  There is often some confusion with patronyms of the University of Washington, Washington University in St.  Louis, and the University of Minnesota.   The patronyms are UDub, WashU, and The U, respectively.
There are four different schools taking the top spot in the university division over the last seven years:  MIT, Harvard, Michigan and Wisconsin.  In the college division there are now seven colleges to have taken the top spot since these analyses began:  West Point, University of Richmond, Williams College, Davidson College, Carleton College, Wellesley College, and Colorado College.
.
“Tracking schools as brands actually ranks schools from a consumers’ point of view  And using Big Data Textual Analysis allows near real-time updates of an institution’s reputation or ‘brand equity’ using the same techniques used to measure the appeal of any other branded entity, such as luxury automobiles or consumer electronics”, said Paul JJ Payack, President and Chief Word Analyst of the Global Language Monitor. “Employing these advanced techniques to analyze Big Data also helps eliminate the built-in biases and arbitrary distinctions of most other rating systems, such as excluding from the rankings online institutions, military academies , design, music, and art schools.”    This is the ninth TrendTopper MediaBuzz ranking over the preceding seven years.

West Point completed a remarkable rise over the last three analyses, moving up some 23 spots.

The US Military Academy, of course, also took top public college honors.   Some Twenty-two of the Top 25 colleges are private institutions.
There are now seven colleges to have taken the Top College Brand spot since these analyses began:  West Point, University of Richmond, Williams College, Davidson College, Carleton College, Wellesley College, Colorado College.

Mandela Tops All Media Funerals, except John Paul II’s, Since 1997

No. 3 Ronald Reagan, No. 4 Princess Diana, No. 5 Michael Jackson, No. 6 Mother Teresa

Lady Thatcher Does Not Make the Cut

Ranked by TrendTopper Internet MediaBuzz

Austin, TX January, 2014 – In an exclusive analysis performed by the Global Language Monitor, the death of Nelson Mandela has topped those of all global influencers since 1997 with the exception of Pope John II, back in 2005.

“The emergence of Nelson Mandela into the No. 2 position is a testimony to the universal appeal of the man and his ideals,” said Paul JJ Payack, president and the Chief Word Analyst of GLM, “especially in a time when superficialities such as ‘twerking’ and the taking of so-called ‘selfies,’ seem to monopolize the airways in all their many forms.”

The re-emergence of John Paul II into the top spot also is seen by some as a worthy tribute to a man who helped end Communism’s grip over Eastern Europe and beyond.  The legacy of  Ronald Reagan presidency is viewed as transformational by both US political parties which can account for his continued high regard.

Austin, Texas, January 30, 2013 – For the second year in a row, MIT topped Harvard for the top ranking of American universities according to the TrendTopper MediaBuzz ranking of American colleges and universities.  This is the second time that a technical institute has topped the rankings.  Following MIT and Harvard were

Columbia University; Stanford University; and the University of California, Berkeley up nine spots and moving into the Top Ten.  Rounding out the Top Ten were Yale; the University of Chicago (which slipped four spots); the University of Texas, Austin; Cornell and Princeton.

.
The University of California, Berkeley took top public university honors making a huge move back into the Top Ten.  Some 13 of the Top 25 are now public universities.  The University of Minnesota gained 15 spots up to No. 20, while Wisconsin and Michigan dropped 11 and 12 spots respectively. There have now been four different schools taking the top spot in the last six years:  Harvard, Michigan, Wisconsin, and MIT.

.
“The higher education world is in the midst of a major upheaval that has only begun to sort itself out. You can’t have institutions of the stature of MIT, Berkeley and Texas give away their product for free, or millions of students opt for on-line schools or educations provided by for-profit organizations — and not record significant change.  This is all part of the globalization (and democratization) of higher ed.  In fact you need a seismograph to better understand the shifting of the tectonic plates of education, once long thought stable,” said Paul JJ Payack, president and Chief Word Analyst of GLM.  
.
The rankings measure near real-time movements of an institution’s reputation or ‘brand equity’, using the same techniques used to measure the appeal of any other branded product, such as luxury automobiles, or consumer electronics. This is the eighth TrendTopper MediaBuzz ranking over the preceding six years; the rankings are conducted every nine months.  There have now been four different schools taking the top spot in the last six years:  Harvard, Michigan, Wisconsin, and MIT.

This is the second major ranking to be released since the Penn State scandal.  In the previous TTMB rankings 3.42% of citations had some association with the scandal.  In this survey, scandal-related citations crept up to 6.8%.   Penn State’s ranking had been on an upswing since since the success of their identity campaign in 2010.  Since peaking in the Top 20 in 2011, Penn State fell to No. 51 in the immediate aftermath of the scandal in 2012.  Penn State’s has now recovered to its current position at No. 39, which suggests that its reputation is still suffering the effects of the Sandusky scandal.
.
.
Emory in the university rankings and Claremont McKenna in the college rankings each had SAT misrepresentations made public since the last survey.  Both fell in the rankings.  Emory fell from No. 59 to No. 71.  Claremont McKenna fell more dramatically from No. 33 to No. 75 in the College Rankings. Of course, it is open to question whether or not their drops were a direct result of their reported improprieties.
..
Top Colleges
For the second year in a row, Richmond topped the college rankings, followed by Bucknell, up two spots.   The rest of the Top 25 underwent significant changes.  No. 3 West Point, No. 4 Wellesley, and No. 5 the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), made strides of sixteen, eight and twelve respectively.  Middlebury and Vassar broke into the Top Ten with gains of six and 11 spots, respectively, while Babson jumped 16 spots and Navy gained 11.  Other top movers included RISD, Swarthmore, Lafayette, Bard, Dickinson, and VMI, which all made double-digit moves into the Top 25, with RISD moving up some 21 spots and Dickinson some 34.
.
Reflecting the healthy distribution of “Little Ivies” across the national landscape, Richmond is the sixth  different college to take the top spot since these rankings began, which now have been represented by the South (Richmond and Davidson), the West (Colorado College), the East (Williams and Wellesley College) and the Midwest (Carleton College).  Wellesley was (and remains) the only women’s college to top a general college ranking.

About TrendTopper MediaBuzz
GLM created the TrendTopper MediaBuzz analysis as a way of seeing the schools through the eyes of the world at large. In the rapidly changing communications and media environment of the early 21st Century, you cannot rely on telephone surveys, at-home interviews, newspaper clippings or television mentions in order to measure the value of a brand.  Today the methodology must encompass the Twitters and YouTubes of the world as well as the tens of millions of blogs, the billions of web pages, as well as the top global print and electronic media.
.
This enormous sample simply cannot be tampered with because no single institution has the ability to influence, let alone corrupt, data streaming from hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of points of origin.  TrendTopper MediaBuzz utilizes a mathematical model that “normalizes” the data and allows us to make statistically-significant comparisons among the various measurements.  The end result is a non-biased analytical tool that will allow you to gauge the relative values differing institutions are assigned by consumers, as well as measures of how that value changes over time.
.
The Top Colleges and Universities were also ranked by “Media Momentum”, defined as its largest change in Media Buzz from the end of the last survey and the largest change in media citations in the previous nine months.  The study is longitudinal in nature with the latest analysis completed January 8, 2012.

This is the second major ranking to be released since the Penn State scandal.  In the previous TTMB rankings 3.42% of citations had some association with the scandal.  In this survey, scandal-related citations crept up to 6.8%.   Penn State’s ranking had been on an upswing since since the success of their identity campaign in 2010.  Since peaking in the Top 20 in 2011, Penn State fell to No. 51 in the immediate aftermath of the scandal in 2012.  Penn State’s has now recovered to its current position at No. 39, which suggests that its reputation is still suffering the effects of the Sandusky scandal.
.
.
Emory in the university rankings and Claremont McKenna in the college rankings each had SAT misrepresentations made public since the last survey.  Both fell in the rankings.  Emory fell from No. 59 to No. 71.  Claremont McKenna fell more dramatically from No. 33 to No. 75 in the College Rankings. Of course, it is open to question whether or not their drops were a direct result of their reported improprieties.

About TrendTopper MediaBuzz
GLM created the TrendTopper MediaBuzz analysis as a way of seeing the schools through the eyes of the world at large. In the rapidly changing communications and media environment of the early 21st Century, you cannot rely on telephone surveys, at-home interviews, newspaper clippings or television mentions in order to measure the value of a brand.  Today the methodology must encompass the Twitters and YouTubes of the world as well as the tens of millions of blogs, the billions of web pages, as well as the top global print and electronic media.
.
This enormous sample simply cannot be tampered with because no single institution has the ability to influence, let alone corrupt, data streaming from hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of points of origin.  TrendTopper MediaBuzz utilizes a mathematical model that “normalizes” the data and allows us to make statistically-significant comparisons among the various measurements.  The end result is a non-biased analytical tool that will allow you to gauge the relative values differing institutions are assigned by consumers, as well as measures of how that value changes over time.
.
The Top Colleges and Universities were also ranked by “Media Momentum”, defined as its largest change in Media Buzz from the end of the last survey and the largest change in media citations in the previous nine months.  The study is longitudinal in nature with the latest analysis completed January 8, 2012.

The Top Colleges and Universities were also ranked by “Media Momentum”, defined as its largest change in Media Buzz from the end of the last survey and the largest change in media citations in the previous nine months.  The study is longitudinal in nature with the latest analysis completed January 8, 2012.
