Digging a little deeper, our ranking was unchanged from last year. We were ranked 301-350 two years ago.

Information about how they rank schools:
Our team of data experts evaluates world-class universities against 13 separate performance indicators, covering the full range of a top university’s essential areas of activity: research; interaction with business; international outlook; and, uniquely, the teaching environment.

I was wondering why we tied with UTSA so I pulled some raw data of the scores I could see (overall scores are withheld along with data from schools in the Top 200):

So UTSA basically got its ranking from Citations. USF’s Industry Income is extremely high. Unfortunately, I can’t really dig any deeper as there’s nothing provided to show how they calculated the numbers.
