NUST MISiS has entered the Top-100 of THE BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings


For the first time NUST MISiS has entered THE BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings and at once ranked in the Top-100. In 2014 only 18 BRICS and other developing countries were participating in the competition, in 2015 the number of participants has increased to 48. It proves that NUST MISiS has shown the most considerable rate of growth under the conditions of increasing competition. 

NUST MISiS made a major breakthrough by entering THE World University Rankings 2015-2016 and ranking in the band #601-800. «We already see the results: Russia is high up on the international agenda. Universities like NUST MISiS are well-known internationally, people are aware of the opportunities, they are more visible in Times Higher Education website, and it has been in publications, but before I translate to ranking success it does take some time to improve publication outputs, to improve reputation», said Phil Baty, Editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings is the latest of all THE Rankings created only in 2013. In the same year only two Russian universities entered the ranking and in 2015 another five joined. By the end of 2015 fifteen leading Russian universities are included in the ranking. 

THE BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings are generated from five Pillars: Teaching (the learning environment), Research (volume, income and reputation), Citations (research influence), International outlook (staff, students and research), Industry income (knowledge transfer). 

«This is the fifth international ranking that NUST MISiS has entered after joining the Competitiveness Enhancement Project of the Leading Russian Universities among the Global Research and Education Centers. In 2015 we strengthened our positions in the world leading rankings: QS University Rankings: BRICS, QS World University Ranking and we also entered THE World University Rankings. From year to year NUST MISiS continuously shows the positive dynamics in the World University Rankings. It demonstrates that our strategy is right and a great systematic modernization work executed by NUST MISiS is already globally visible»
