Thus not counting.
However... it's rare that an American university is known for *both* academics and athletics. MIT, Harvard, Yale or Princeton are never going to be in the NCAA Final Four. Duke and Georgetown both have pretty respectable basketball teams. UVA has a decent football team. UNC Chapel Hill has a good basketball team. Florida has a good football team. But out of the top 50 universities in the US (academically), those might be the only ones with nationally relevant athletics departments.
All top 50 universities with extensive, nationally successful sports teams. In other words, it is definitely not "rare" for an American university to be known both for athletics and academics.
In fact, a hefty proportion of American Olympians come from fairly prestigious universities. Why? Probably because training for the Olympics requires a similar kind of dedication as excelling at a highly competitive university, and additionally, both require a lot of money. In other words, there's a logical overlap of academics and athletes, both on a socioeconomic level and on a personal level.
it is estimated that over 60% of Dutch nationals have a university, college or similar higher education degree. There is a terrible shortage of plumbers, electricians and carpenters though.
The year I graduated I got my degree issued on January 17 and was hired, granted a visa, relocated and in Korea working at a new job by February 1.
I don't know how they rank universities; I think the Indian universities suffer in the rankings because they don't produce enough research.
Also, many italian people can't get a title in italian universitied, then they go to USA and have the best valutations. Anything strange?
Finally, all main european countries are in this list. Also Sweden or Netherlands or Switzerland, that are very smaller in population. Also Spain, that is similar, but with less tradition. But Italy doesn't appear.
