Aalto reached the US News' top 100 list in computer science and business

The position improved also in the general rankings.

Aalto University improved its position in several areas of the ranking published by US News. In computer science field, Aalto University rose to position 83 from the previous year's 98th position. In economics and business, the improvement was three positions to 89. In engineering Aalto's ranking was 144, and in materials science it was 125. In these subject rankings, the placement was the best among Finland's universities.

In the general rankings, Aalto University reached the position 352, an improvement from the previous year's 375.

US News global ranking is based on data obtained via Thomson Reuters' Web of Science and InCities analysis tools. The measurements were based, among other things, on research publications and citations as well as reputation and international collaboration. In the general rankings, 750 universities are globally compared; in subject rankings the number varies.

Depending on the way calculated, there are between 17 000 and 22 000 universities in the world. Aalto University is specialised in technology, business and arts, and company cooperation is important to the university.
