Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine was ranked eighth in the world and third in the United States among veterinary schools in the latest global ranking from educational data specialists Quacquarelli Symonds, or QS.

“At a time when everyone is being challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic and good news is a hot commodity, our college takes special pride in the high-quality of education we deliver to our students,” said Birgit Puschner, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine. “Our DVM program is a testament not just to our students and educators, but to our entire community – alumni, donors, staff, and our health and research partners – that supports us, no matter the context or conditions we face.”

The veterinary college’s prominent ranking continues on its upward trajectory – the college was ranked eleventh in 2019 and 2018, 12th in 2017 and 15th in 2016.

MSU also retains its number one rank among the six colleges of veterinary medicine in the Big Ten, a union of world-class academic institutions that share a common mission of research, graduate, professional and undergraduate teaching and public service. Six of the 30 veterinary programs in the United States are in the Big Ten.
