Bilkent University has been ranked 41st in the Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings for 2016. The list of the top 200 universities in this category was announced on December 2.
The THE BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings include institutions from the 48 countries classified as emerging economies (advanced and secondary) or “frontier economies” by FTSE. Institutions from 35 of these countries appear among the top 200 for 2016.
The rankings use the same performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings, examining each university’s strengths in the areas of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. But for these rankings, the methodology is recalibrated to better reflect the characteristics and development priorities of universities in developing economies. For example, more weight is given to a university’s industry links and international outlook.
Worldwide, Peking University ranked first. Seven universities in Turkey, including Bilkent, were listed in the top 100. The others were: Koç University (13), Sabancı University (22), İstanbul University (62), Middle East Technical University (64), İstanbul Technical University (69) and Boğaziçi University (71).
