Aalto was the best ranked young university from the Nordic countries, with Aalborg University next at 27th place. This year taking first place was the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology over École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, which has held the spot for three years.

Of those universities founded after 2000, Aalto ranked fifth in the world.
