CEU has achieved its best ever ranking for research and teaching by QS Quacquarelli Symonds, a leading provider of higher education global rankings.
In two subjects—Politics and International Studies ranks at 30 and Philosophy ranks at 37—CEU takes its position in the top 50 universities worldwide. In three subjects, History, Sociology, and Social Policy and Administration, CEU ranks in the top 100. In its first appearance in the influential rankings, Psychology is amongst the world’s top 300.
At a time when the Hungarian government has expelled CEU from Budapest, CEU President and Rector Michael Ignatieff observed, “how ironic it is that the government seeks to drive us out when the rankings establish CEU’s position as the number 1 research university in Hungary.”
The rankings position CEU as greatly contributing to the global reputation enjoyed by Vienna's world renowned universities, in the year when CEU moves its teaching programs to the Austrian capital.
Rector Ignatieff added: “As we look towards launching our first ever undergraduate programs this fall in Vienna, we’re proud of our record as one of the world’s foremost research and learning institutions. Faculty and staff at CEU can take real pride in their accomplishments.”
