Times Higher Education is one of the world's most influential university rankings, and its general ranking measures the performance of universities with 13 indicators in the areas of international research, citations, teaching and research funding from companies.

In addition to the general list, THE produces rankings in specific fields of science as well as regional rankings. Aalto’s THE general ranking this year is 184.
