Keeping a tally of the recipients of Nobel Prizes, Times Higher Education (THE), recently released a list of the ten universities that have, since 2000, been affiliated with the highest number of winners.
Of the top 10, the first nine schools are located in the United States, while tenth place went to an institution in Israel.
Placing outside the top 10, Rockefeller University and the Max Planck Society in Germany. The UK’s University of Cambridge and the University of Manchester tied at 15th, are both down from a 14th place showing last year.
Methodology:
Times Higher Education created the ranking by giving each university a score based on the number of Nobel Prize winners affiliated with the institution at the time its award was granted. The score was then weighted based on the number of prizewinners for the category and the number of institutions affiliated with each award winner.
Literature and peace prizewinners were excluded from the analysis.
By the numbers, these are the ten schools with most Nobel Prize-winning work since 2000.
