The British edition of Times Higher Education (THE) has published the results of the Emerging Economies University Rankings 2020. TSU took 52nd position and 6th in the Russian part of it.
The top 100 included 10 Russian universities: Lomonosov Moscow State University (5th position), Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (12th), Higher School of Economics (18th), National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (27th), ITMO (35th), TSU (52nd), Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (72nd), Novosibirsk State University (82nd), MISIS (89th), and St. Petersburg State University (100th).
Eight out of ten Russian universities in the first 100 of the ranking are participants in the 5-100 project to increase competitiveness. In total, there are 39 Russian universities in the ranking.
- The dynamics that the participating universities of Project 5-100 have been demonstrating in the ranking since 2015 show how government support can improve the ranking of universities. The representation of Project 5-100 universities in the THE ranking increased from zero in 2013, when it was first published, to seven or more universities each year starting in 2015. For a global market, the competition in which is constantly growing, this is a pretty impressive achievement, - said Phil Baty, editor-in-chief of the THE ranking.
The THE Emerging Economies University Rankings includes universities in countries classified as developing (based on the FTSE classification), which are divided into three groups: Advanced Emerging, Secondary Emerging, and Frontier. Overall, 533 universities from 47 countries or regions are in it, including China, India, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Turkey, Qatar, Morocco, Cyprus, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia.
The ranking methodology is based on 13 performance indicators, including teaching (learning environment), research (volume, income, and reputation), citation (research influence), international outlook (staff, students, and research), and industry income (knowledge transfer).
