The publication released its 2022 Best Global Universities Rankings yesterday, a list that considers more than 1,700 different schools from around the world using 13 different categories. OSU landed near the top of the list, in a tie for the 52nd best university in the world with the University of Wisconsin-Madison. One spot above the Buckeyes was McGill University, widely regarded as the “Harvard of Canada.”

OSU, which according to the list has 55,809 total students, received a global score of 75.8.
