Keiser Rankings are Making Headlines

Have you seen Keiser University’s rankings lately? Well, if you haven’t, you may be in for a treat. Keiser Seahawks, me included, are grinning from ear to ear. In the last couple of days, college rankings were announced in U.S. News and World Report placing Keiser University among “national rankings” for colleges, for the first time in our history. Keiser University is now ranked 272 out of 381 top-rated schools in the U.S., according to US News and World Report’s 2020 edition announcement.

Here is a list of some of our highlights regarding rankings over the past year:

•  “Safest Schools in The U.S.,” Ranked  #2 by The College Post in 2019

•  Money Magazine, 8th in “Best Colleges” in 2018

in South Florida

•  US News and World Report 2020 edition, 34th in the category of Social Mobility

(ahead of Florida State), 38th in “Best Colleges for Veterans,” and 56th in regional

universities – South, ahead of Southern University, the University of Central Florida,

•  Florida Trend, 1st for Private/Non-profit Colleges & Universities for the 2018 enrollment,

•  Also, for the record, our job placement rates were 93.62% in 2018

Our campuses provide an annual statewide economic impact of more than $3 billion and directly and indirectly impact over 30,000 Florida jobs.

We’ve come a long way since 1977, when we started with just one student. Now, Keiser University, with the help of our invaluable team of staff, faculty, and leaders within our school, have not only helped to elevate our rankings, but have maintained our all important culture of “Student First.”

Presently, the trending job openings in the U.S. are escalating at a rate exceeding fulfillment for many sectors. Keiser is keeping up with this demand, only because we have been able to predict trends and grow our programs exponentially.

Presently, we have nearly 20,000 students enrolled for the Fall of 2020. We are now the largest independent university in The State of Florida!

It is truly an exciting time to be a Keiser University Seahawk!
