Aalto University has once again seen excellent performance in the one of the world’s most respected university rankings, the ShanghaiRanking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects.

Aalto’s top ranking field according to the 2018 results is Telecommunication Engineering, which placed 28th in the world. Two fields from the Aalto School of Business saw the biggest gains this year: Business Administration jumped up to 34th place from last year’s range of 51-75 and Management moved from 49th position to 36th.

Several other fields at Aalto also ranked in the top 100. Placing between spots 51-75 were Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Remote Sensing, and Mining and Mineral Engineering. The subject of Transportation Science and Technology maintained its place in the 76-100 range.

The annual ShanghaiRankings, first released in 2009, evaluate universities in 54 subjects across the natural sciences, engineering, as well as life, medical and social sciences. The rankings do not assess subjects related to art and design. In total, over 4000 universities were evaluated in 2018.
