Ivy League Universities and Best Specialties

Ivy League is an association of the best American universities. Informally, the concept of the Ivy League arose at the beginning of the 20 century in honor of ivy, with which the walls of universities were twisted, as well as the students' annual tradition of planting ivy. The first official association of these educational institutions took place in 1954 in connection with the development of sports - the National Association of University Sports (NCAA) included universities in the first division. Later, the universities of the League began to be considered highly competitive not only in sports, but also in other aspects.

Universities of the Ivy League have long secured their place in the top world and national rankings. The competition for admission is one of the highest in the world: only 5-10% of all applicants become students. But those who still become students get a lot of advantages, among which:

  1. high quality education provided by attracting the best professors and allocating unlimited budgets for infrastructure development.
  2. the opportunity to participate in projects of internal and inter-university organizations along with graduates, professors and employees of major companies.
  3. demand after graduation: on average 84%.

The Ivy League includes: Harvard University, Princeton University, Cornell University, Yale University, Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University, Dartmouth College. All universities are located in the northeastern United States.
