GDUT ranks top in the THE Emerging Economices University rankings 2020
Times Higher Education (THE) has released its latest ranking of institutions in emerging economies. GDUT is ranked 196th in 47 countries or regions, and 51st in China mainland.
The announcement was made in London on February 18, 2020. The ranking considers research-led universities from the 50 countries classified by the London Stock Exchange's FTSE Group as "advanced emerging", "secondary emerging" or "frontier".
The rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings to judge institutions on their teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.But with the Emerging Economy Rankings, the methodology has been carefully recalibrated to better reflect the characteristics and development priorities of universities in emerging economies - giving more weight, for example, to a university's industry links and international outlook.
The final list of 533 universities was drawn from only 47 countries or regions because of the rigorous criteria applied to the rankings.
