BAM releases Best Master Of Architecture Programs of 2021

The Best Architecture Masters (BAM) has released its 2021 edition of its ranking for the best Architecture Master Programs from all over the world in the year of 2021. 

Released as an annual list, BAM, an independent research platform of postgraduate programs of architecture, has published the best 22 Universities from around the world based on the QS Ranking by Subjects – Architecture / Built Environment for the 2021 edition. 

The 22 Universities below were selected by BAM's Expert Committee, comprised of 15 professors from some of the best-ranked Universities. According to BAM, "this approach allows us to make an international-comparative study, that reflects the best architecture master’s programs from almost all over the world."

To name the Best Universities, BAM uses its own BAM Methodology formed by universal indicators for the evaluation of educational performance, and validated also by its Expert Committee. BAM's aim is to help architects and students to get to know the best International Master’s programs available in the world, thanks to its own transparent comparative system.

In 2021, the Harvard University's Master of Architecture II is ranked at the top of the list, while Columbia University's Master of Science Degree in Advanced Architectural Design comes at the second row and TU Delft's The Berlage Post-master in Architecture and Urban Design in the Netherlands takes the third row in the list. 

The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid / ETH Zurich's Master of Advanced Studies in Collective Housing (MCH) comes in the fourth position and Tsinghua University in Beijing comes in the fifth row for its English Program for Master in Architecture, making best university of Asia.
