Here is a new list . If you try to understand the methodology reading public sources (as I do now), read. (Friend from CEU, you are not listed, since :universities are excluded from the World University Rankings if they do not teach undergraduates”.
“The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are the only global performance tables that judge research-intensive universities across all their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. We use 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons, trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.”
Of course, there are out of blue weighting factors. As concerns the large categories, their numerical values were set as:
Teaching (the learning environment): 30%
Research (volume, income and reputation): 30%
Citations (research influence): 30%
International outlook (staff, students, research): 7.5%
Industry income (knowledge transfer): 2.5%.
If you dig a little deeper you will see the role of reputation surveys.
Dear Reader: How do you see the adopted method from the perspective of objectivity-subjectivity?
