Brown University

Brown University is one of eight privately owned and operated "Ivy League" institutions of higher learning in the United States which include Harvard, Dartmouth, Princetone and Yale, among others. With just over 9,000 full-time students, Brown isn't among the largest undergraduate institutions in the United States, but it most certainly is among the most prestigious. It has a total annual enrollment of roughly 6,500 undergraduate and 2,500 graduate students each year. The university has graduated some of the most successful and influencial people in politics, business and academia including billionaires, Rhodes Scholars, Nobel Prize winners, Fulbright scholars, Marshall scholars and National Medal of Science laureates. Brown has an endowment of roughly $3.3 billion.

Brown has an acceptance rate of 9.5%, making it one of the most selective of undergraduate institutions in the United States. The university is made up of the Alpert Medical School, the School of Engineering, The College, the School of Public Health, the Graduate School, and the School of Professional Studies. Brown also offers very reputable full-time and executive MBA programs.

Through an academic partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design (one of America's top art colleges) students can take advantage of the Brown/RISD Dual Degree Program. This program allows students to cross-register at the two schools. Students attending at Brown University are able to complete up to 4 RISD courses which will count toward the completion of their degree at Brown. To participate in the Brown/RISD program students must first apply to the program. Only about 3.3% of Brown students are accepted to the RISD program each year.
