New LinkedIn College Rankings
Recently, professional network LinkedIn decided it would provide impressionable youth a new metric by which to measure its university’s prestige, or lack thereof. The new LinkedIn College Rankings grades universities by the career outcomes its graduates have… So it doesn’t bring a new way to look at college (as a means to an end to certain careers or jobs), it is the first to do what we all do anyway. We asked the Owler community to give us its feedback on LinkedIn College Rankings, and here’s what it had to say:
“I don’t think they will become the standard, but they could become another useful tool available for students.” –A Naysayer
“I think they’re interesting but the way they are calculating the rankings is totally different from how we think about university rankings, and I am not sure that their approach is how people will want to thinking about rankings.” – A Naysayer
