The CWUR (Center for World University Rankings) has recently published its newest international ranking list for 2016. On this list, the University of Pécs has placed itself among the world’s leading and best universities!
The university ranked on the 877th place this year, which means that the university increased its position by 16 places compared to last year. Based on this ranking, the UP belongs to the leading 3,6% of international universities worldwide.
The ranking list is based on eight different criteria, including the Alumni employment, the quality of education, the quality of faculty, the citations, the number of publications, the number of patents, the university’s influence and the broad impact. Nevertheless, the employment and the quality are the most important criteria and make up most of the total score.
József Bódis, rector of the University of Pécs emphasized: „It is exceptional to belong to the top 900 of the world, moreover, this time we also improved our position compared to last year’s. It should be noted, however, that the University of Pécs could be in an even more prominent position if the successes in the areas of art would count in these international higher education rankings as well. If these indicators were taken into consideration we could make another huge step forward”.
