    Only six months after receiving a ranking as the country's third best school for software developers at startups, Brown University's graduate program in Computer Science has been rated by LinkedIn as the country's best graduate program in Computer Science for producing software developers at top companies. Once again, Brown CS has overcome competition from universities whose LinkedIn presence is four times the size of Brown's.

    LinkedIn's methodology was to identify the top companies where software developers are choosing to work, then find people on LinkedIn who work as software developers and determine where they went to school. LinkedIn then cross-referenced by finding the percentage of alums for each school who have software development jobs at the top companies, then compared the percentages to create the list.
