Strategic Management and Corporate Governance
The present study aims at determining how the strategies adopted by the Russian universities taking part in the 5/100 program can influence their efficiency and, consequently, their advancement in global rankings. The study adopts the DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) methodology to measure the efficiency of university and data from 2013 and 2015 are compared to see whether there have been some changes over time. The study reveals that the efficiency rates do not seem to be strictly correlated with possible changes in the strategies adopted by the universities. However, high efficiency rates seem to be correlated with higher positions in global rankings, so we can conclude that the increase in efficiency favors the advancement in global rankings.
