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."

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. 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, publishes school profiles, career guides, scholarship guides, and news and information of relevance to graduate-level students, faculty and staff.
