An esteemed international ranking has placed two youthful Finnish universities among the top 50 in the world.
Finnish arts, science, technology and business university Aalto has been ranked seventh in the annual QS Top 50 under 50 . It is the only Nordic university to make the top 10. This represents a clear improvement on last year’s result, when it did not make the top 50.
Elsewhere, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) was placed 47th on the international list.
The annual listing has been published since 2004 and evaluates universities based on six indicators: academic reputation, employer reputation, research citations per faculty member, faculty/student ratio, proportion of international students, and proportion of international faculty members.
Topping the ranking for the fourth year in a row was Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.
