The LA Business Journal regularly runs lists of top firms in LA County by various criteria and sectors. It also has a listing in this week’s issue of colleges and universities ranked by enrollment.
UCLA is the largest campus in the County with over 40,000 students; USC is the second largest. With the talk around about privatization, it might be of interest to contrast UCLA (public) with USC (private), using the data from the Journal. The biggest contrast is that USC has more faculty, full time and part time, than UCLA, although fewer students. On the other hand, UCLA has substantially more non-faculty employees than USC. Both universities have med schools but UCLA’s is bigger. How much of the non-faculty employment gap is due to the difference in med school size cannot be determined from the Journal‘s data.
