General Methodology:

Find detailed information on the CEOWORLD magazine rankings — Best universities to study architecture and interior design in America, 2018. Magazine’s rankings is based on four major metrics of quality and reputation. Overall Score (100%) is the sum of:

1. Reputation And Influence (30%)
2. Recruiter Feedback (30%)
3. Admission eligibility (20%)
4. Specialization (20%)

To establish our list, we collected information and statistics from publicly available sources, university’s website, research, and survey. It measures the quality of education, university’s reputation, and the recruiters feedback, without relying on university data submissions.

Students, industry professionals, and recruiters were asked to rate colleges and universities on a scale of 1 “marginal” to 100 “outstanding” or “don’t know.”

However, this is by no means a comprehensive list, while the universities above are the “CEOWORLD magazine’s best universities to study architecture and interior design in America, 2018,” there may be many other universities that offer excellent programs.
