Aalto University has risen to 181st place in the World University Rankings, published today by the Times Higher Education (THE). Last year, the university sat at spot 190.

Aalto has climbed in the general rankings for five straight years: in 2013 Aalto found its place between 301–350, in 2014 in the range of 251–275, in 2015 at 251–300 and in 2016 its position was 201–250.

The Times Higher Education general rankings measure universities’ success according to 13 indicators related to international outlook, research, citations, teaching and research funding from companies. Aalto’s strongest area was international outlook.

Evaluated this year were approximately 1500 universities, of which 1258 made it to the final ranking. The top university for 2018–2019 was University of Oxford (United Kingdom). For a university like Aalto, which specialises in technology, business and arts, general rankings may be less relevant than rankings by field or subject, which THE will release later this year. In the ShanghaiRanking by subject published this July, eight of Aalto’s fields ranked in the global top 100.
