THE Emerging Economies Rankings Dominated by China

The latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) Emerging Economies Rankings has been announced. This includes institutions in those countries that the London Stock Exchange considers advanced emerging, secondary emerging, or frontier.

The rankings use the same thirteen indicators in THE’s World University Rankings but with modified weightings to reflect the needs of emerging economies and to reduce some of the anomalies found there.

Mainland China continues to dominate these rankings while Hong Kong and Taiwan perform well. Some observers have suggested that China is no longer an emerging economy and should not be included. The top five universities are all Chinese: Peking University, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, Fudan University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Top universities in selected countries are:

Russia: Lomonosov Moscow State University

Saudi Arabia: King Abdulaziz University

South Africa University of the Witwatersrand

India: Indian Institute of Science
