The Rochester Institute of Technology is a private research university consistently ranked as a top institution for many of its programs. Originally formed as a merger between a literary society and a technical training institute, RIT retains its dual focus, equally acclaimed in the humanities and the sciences.

While RIT is best known for its fine arts programs, the Saunders College of Business consistently ranks highly in US News and World Report, Businessweek, and the Princeton Review.
