HSE Joins Top-100 in the QS Rankings of Young Universities
HSE is the only Russian university to win a place in the top 100 QS rankings of universities under 50.
QS has been publishing rankings of young universities since 2012 to track the progress of young, fast-developing HEIs which present a growing challenge to the long-established players in the field of higher education.
The ratings are based on the same categories as the main QS university rankings (HSE improved its institutional indicators in 2015). They include academic reputation, student-to-faculty ratios, citations per faculty member, employer reputation, international faculty and international student ratios.
‘QS rankings are to a large extent based on reputation - 50% of a university’s points depend on its reputation among academics and with employers,’ explains Liudmila Solntseva, Director of the HSE Ranking Information Centre. ‘The old universities always have the advantage in this respect, it’s very difficult for young universities to break into the rankings when their academic reputations are on average 1.5 times lower than universities ‘over 50’. A special ranking for young universities lets us see how they are developing when they are only just starting to build their reputation.’
Universities from 40 countries are represented in the the Top 100 Under 50. The Nanyang Technological University of Singapore takes first place but Australian universities dominate with 16 of them in the top 100. HSE is in the group 81st-90th and is the only Russian HEI which has made it into the ranking.
