BestMastersPrograms.org managing editor J. Adler commented, "Choosing where to study a masters degree is a big life decision. We have compiled this list to highlight the 50 universities with the most Nobel-winning affiliates and inspire would-be masters students to weigh up their options and pick the right college."
Coming up with an exact count of Nobel Prize winners for a university is a surprisingly complicated matter. Many universities maintain their own tallies using widely divergent methodologies, most narrower than what appears on this list. Within this list, the Official Counts are those published by the universities themselves, while the unofficial count uses a broader, more inclusive tally of all prize winners affiliated with the university.
BestMastersPrograms.org is an online publication dedicated to helping prospective masters degree students find the right program to achieve their goals. In addition to rankings and reviews, BestMasterPrograms.org publishes school profiles, career guides, scholarship guides, and news and information of relevance to graduate-level students, faculty and staff.
