EU higher education institutions are doing well in 2019 U-Multirank university ranking

The 2019 U-Multirank university ranking shows that European universities are performing well. The sixth and so far largest edition of the U-Multirank was published on 4 June 2019, scoring more than 1,700 universities from 96 countries. The annual ranking compares higher education institutions' performance in areas that matter most to students. A map showing the universities with top overall performance is a new feature U-Multirank has added in this year's edition. European higher education institutions are doing very well: EDHEC Business School (France), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), and the University of Groningen (the Netherlands) are among the top performers. Eight Austrian universities are among the top-25 performers in the 2019 ranking. The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Graz University of Technology, the Vienna University of Economics and Business, and the Medical University of Vienna are among the best performers in the dimensions research and knowledge transfer. U-Multirank has also analysed the international openness of universities worldwide. Results show that the more universities cooperate internationally, the more satisfied their students are with their learning experience. These universities also do better in knowledge transfer and research impact.

U-Multirank is the first global multi-dimensional ranking allowing users to create their own personalised rankings by selecting performance indicators on teaching and learning, international orientation, knowledge transfer, regional engagement and research.
