Times Higher Education World University Rankings

Prof. Kostyuk received an invitation of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings’ Editor to take part in the Academic Reputation Survey. Prof. Kostyuk will represent Ukraine and his field of specialization – corporate governance.

Times Higher Education World University Rankings are annual university rankings published by British Times Higher Education (THE) magazine. Rankings list the best global universities and are the only international university performance tables to judge world-class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The top universities rankings employ 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.

This is the first year when senior academics around the world are being invited to shape the results of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016 and to contribute to the most comprehensive picture yet produced of global teaching and research.

Here is the letter received by Prof. Kostyuk:

To give you some context, we only invite highly regarded individuals in their specialist fields to take part in the survey, which is being undertaken in partnership with Elsevier. The results help us to create an unparalleled picture of the global higher education and research landscape, and they inform the influential THE World University Rankings and THE World Reputation Rankings.
