UC San Diego was named one of the top 10 public universities in the country by US News & World Report Monday, while San Diego State University’s International Business program earned the school a top 10 place among similar programs across the country.

In addition to a top 10 spot, UC San Diego was ranked 13th among the best colleges for veterans and 34th in the overall list of more than 300 private and public universities across the country.

“UC San Diego is an academic powerhouse that is consistently recognized as a leading institution by organizations like US News & World Report,” said UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. “These rankings reflect UC San Diego’s commitment to academic excellence, the efforts of our skilled faculty, and the continued success of our students.”

The university’s Jacobs School of Engineering was also ranked 19th among engineering schools offering doctoral degrees and 11th among public schools.

San Diego State University ranked 67th overall among public universities, while its International Business undergraduate degree ranked 8th nationwide.

“We are an extraordinary transnational community of inspiring teachers, phenomenal researchers and committed citizens, and our rankings continue to reflect this,” said SDSU Provost Salvador Hector Ochoa.

The school’s bachelor’s business program also took 74th place, seven places more than last year.

SDSU was placed 148th among all public and private schools.

“We owe our ability to maintain our competitive position to our incredibly dedicated faculty and staff, the achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students, and the innovations in our science and research community,” said SDSU President Adela de la Torre. “SDSU is working to become the global model for a public, cross-border university. Our place among the major universities in the country will only be strengthened by our strategic plan that we push forward every day.”
