SAIC Dominates US Art Schools in Media Buzz

SAIC retained its number one ranking among 21 colleges of art and design nationwide when the Global Language Monitor (GLM) released its “Higher Education 2013 Trendtopper MediaBuzz Rankings” on January 30. SAIC also ranked number five overall among 200 US institutions ranked in the College category—up from 17 in April 2012—making SAIC one of only two art schools listed among the top 10 colleges. GLM, a media analytics company based in Austin, Texas, measures institutional visibility according to appearances in global print and electronic media, throughout the blogosphere, and on social media. This is the second consecutive year SAIC earned the number one spot in the “Top US Art/Design/Music School” category. GLM notes, “TrendTopper MediaBuzz Rankings measure near real-time movements of an institution’s reputation or ‘brand equity’…. Unlike other college rankings, specialty schools such as Julliard, SAIC, and the Cooper Union, the service academies, business, [and] tech schools are included.”
