The University of Missouri was recently named No. 13 among all public universities on Time magazine’s inaugural Best Colleges for Future Leaders 2024 list. The award reaffirms Mizzou’s position as a higher education institution dedicated to shaping the lives of future leaders in the United States and beyond and comes on the heels of MU being named the seventh best value among all U.S. flagship universities by U.S. News & World Report.

“We are proud to be recognized as a top university for educating and training leaders,” said University of Missouri President Mun Choi. “This ranking is further proof, along with the #7 Best Value ranking among flagships by the U.S. News & World Report, that Mizzou is a national leader in preparing the next generation to serve our state and society.”

Mizzou is one of only 100 colleges to receive the prestigious honor — and one of only two in Missouri — which is based on an analysis of 2,000 of the most influential people in business, government and society in the U.S. Other public universities recognized include the University of Michigan, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
