Founded in 1809, and nationally recognized as one of the most outstanding undergraduate institutions, Miami University is a public university located in Oxford, Ohio. With a student body of approximately 17,000, including over 1,200 international students from more than 70 countries, Miami effectively combines a wide range of strong academic programs with the personal attention ordinarily found only at much smaller institutions. Miami's undergraduate teaching has received national recognition from US News and World Report, The Princeton Review, The New York Times and Businessweek. For example, U.S.News & World Report ranks Miami the #1 public university for “faculty commitment to undergraduate teaching.” Miami students graduate on time and are well-prepared for the job market or for graduate school. More than 70% of students have at least one internship before they graduate and employers conduct more on-campus interviews at Miami than at other universities our size. Miami is ranked #11 in the US, according to SmartMoney.com for return on tuition investment among both public and private universities.
