Abstract

This study presents a comprehensive benchmarking study of the top 100 U.S. Universities. The methodologies used to come up with insights into the domain are Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and information visualization. Various approaches to evaluating academic institutions have appeared in the literature, including a DEA literature dealing with the ranking of universities. Our study contributes to this literature by the extensive incorporation of information visualization and subsequently the discovery of new insights. The main purpose of this study is creating an objective basis of assessment for the candidate students to use for university preferences. Meanwhile, the actionable insights obtained on the domain can guide university managers as well as candidate students.
