Do you agree with their rankings? Also what do you think of the related University Page and College Board designs?

    I don't pay much attention to rankings like this.

    I have a degree in HCI from a school on this list, but honestly I learned most of what I know from reading books, working on side projects, smart coworkers, touring speakers, and the internet.

      Go UW! I agree that all the real important stuff happens when you do stuff outside of school, how you do it, and how far you're willing to take it.

    These are obviously great schools but their methods for coming up with this list is flawed in my opinion. For example, just because a company is recruiting a lot of designers does not necessarily mean it is a desirable company for the designer.

    Also, I was unable to find mentions of "design" positions that are not necessarily called designer (i.e. art director, creative director, etc .). Too many unknowns for me to agree but I applaud the effort.

    Top Schools for Designers: Linkedin's Rankings is the caption that we will all be able to know for sure. We hope that it was all about https://sflcn.com/how-to-write-high-quality-papers-and-essays-more-quickly/ and from here users will be able to find more details that they can't find elsewhere so work on it.

    Doesn't seem to scientific.

    Here's how we found the top schools for designers:

    First, we identified the top companies where designers are choosing to work.

    Next, we found people on LinkedIn who work as designers and saw where they went to school.

    Finally, for each school, we found the percentage of these alumni who've landed design jobs at these top companies, then compared the percentages to come up with the list.
