Vala Afshar, CMO and Chief Customer Officer of Enterasys Networks, took the top 100 schools in the 2013 national university rankings and re-ranked them based on their combined Klout and Kred scores. And your overall winner? Unsurprisingly, it’s Harvard, who finished ahead of Stanford, University of Michigan, MIT and Syracuse.
