The ShanghaiRanking Consultancy recently announced the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (GRAS) 2023 , representing the most comprehensive and objective ranking of world universities by subjects. In this league, the UG’s Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) ranks among the global top in the field of Business Administration (15). In one year, the faculty has risen significantly in the ranks, as last year FEB ranked 31 in the field of Business Administration.  

FEB is also doing well in other international rankings. In THE World University Rankings by subject for 2024, the faculty ranks in the top 100 in the field of Economics and Business (52). This is also a significant climb compared to last year, when FEB’s ranking was 73.

We are pleased to see that FEB is doing well. This is a result of an enduring focus on quality in research and education. We will continue to do so in the coming years.’’
