|Manhattanville Named One of the Best Schools for Foreign Students|
|Tuesday, September 06, 2011|
The Daily Beast included Manhattanville College on its list of "Best Schools for Foreign Students," ranking the college 12th nationwide. The Daily Beast gave Manhattanville an "A-" ranking in diversity. In a "Top 25" listing which included many Ivy League universities, Manhattanville was the only New York-metropolitan area school included in the rankings and one of two New York State schools listed.
To find the best 25 schools for international students Daily Beast relied on four data points: each college's score for diversity from College Prowler, which takes into account student responses and statistics on whether the school has, among other things, international students with a large presence on campus; the amount of financial aid per international undergraduate student receiving financial aid with data from the College Board; the percentage of student services compared to total core expenses with data from the National Center for Education Statistics; and the percent of international students among the total undergraduate population, also from the NCES. Each data point was weighted equally using z-scores (a measure of how close or distant each school is to the average within each category).
