07 September 2011

In the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), a global Top 500 published annually by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) of the University of Groningen strengthened its research position. Groningen now figures at a shared number 76-100 in 2011, rising from a shared number 101 in 2010.

Professor Tammo Bijmolt, director of FEB's research school SOM: "The 'Shanghai Ranking' is very influential, so we are very proud that we've risen among our collegue economics and business schools.  It is also proof of the quality of our staff and research, and a recognition of an increasing number of publications in top journals.

Starting from 2003, ARWU has been presenting the world top 500 universities annually based on a set of objective indicators and third-party data. ARWU has been recognized as the precursor of global university rankings and the most trustworthy list.

ARWU indicators include: the number of highly cited researchers selected by Thomson Scientific and indexed in Science Citation Index, and per capita performance with respect to the size of an institution. More than 1000 universities are actually ranked by ARWU every year and the best 500 are published.
