The Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies has secured a spot as the No. 7 young university worldwide in the Times Higher Education 2019 Young University Rankings. Sant’Anna School has performed well in this year's Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings Top 200 and gained the tenth position for the “Citations per Faculty” indicator measuring the impact of research on the number of researchers.
Sant’Anna School (founded in 1987) has grown into the THE Times Higher Education Young University Rankings 2019 for universities that are 50 years old or younger jumping 2 places to rank 7th in the world this year.
Times Higher Education rankings are based on stringent metrics. THE ranked more than 300 institutions from 60 different countries in this year’s Young University Rankings, which employ the same rigorous indicators as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings — with young universities measured across their teaching, research, citations, international outlooks and industry outcomes. “We expect Young Universities to continue their accomplishments attained in 50 short years in education, research, innovation, economic development, and community engagement” said the THE analysts.
Sabina Nuti, Sant’Anna School Rector, said, “It’s a remarkable success story. The impact of our growth plays an important role in shaping today’s higher-education environment. The dedication and hard work of our faculty, staff, students and community have once again enabled this prestigious recognition for our institution. I wish to thank again Rector Pierdomenico Perata who worked for the strong foundations we continue to build upon. I took over the helm in May this year. Now, I celebrate and share this tremendous honor with our community. We have developed stronger reputation in the science, technology and engineering fields, and it is a result of our shared values of collaboration, excellence and achievement”.
“As outlined in the QS World University Rankings 2019, we will continue to enhance our ability to meet the opportunities and the challenges we will face. We will demonstrate our academic excellence and teaching across a wide range of subjects and research projects. Our strategic plan will have the capacity to address the most pressing issues in education, research and every pillar of our (including third) mission”.
