Do you dream of winning a Nobel Prize? Then go to one of these schools
A new ranking reveals the 10 universities that produce the most winners.
Assuming you don't follow the Dylan path of folk rock poetry, which schools should you attend if you're looking to add a Nobel Prize to your trophy case? We have your answer.
The Times Higher Education, a London magazine that focuses on the college industry, released its annual rankings of the top 10 universities for producing Nobel prize winners. Coming in first place was Princeton University in New Jersey. Indeed, just earlier this month, Princeton professor F. Duncan Haldane was awarded the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics, the same prize won by Albert Einstein, a fellow Princeton professor.
The only school outside the U.S. to crack the top 10 list is the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel, a public research institution in the coastal Mediterranean city of Haifa. The new rankings cover this century's Nobel prizes awarded from 2000 to 2016, a period when the Technion won four Nobel prizes, all in chemistry. Reuters just named the institution the most innovative in Israel. The Technion has also recently joined up with Cornell University to create the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute on Roosevelt Island in New York.
The other universities rounding out the top 10 include Stanford, Columbia, the University of California in both Berkeley and Santa Barbara, MIT, the University of Chicago, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Harvard University.
