MSU is included in top-5 Europian universities ranking



On May 20, 2015 Thomson Reuters analytical company (which is the one of the leading sources of intellectual information for business and professionals) has published the research of academic reputation of the world’s leading universities. In this rating MSU has got the fifth place among the European universities. The “golden winner” is Harvard University that is followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (the 2-nd place) and University of Oxford (the 3-rd place). Also MSU is the only Russian university in the top-100 world ranking (the 52-nd place).

The new rating is a result of an opinion pool covers 65 000 researchers in 105 fields of knowledge from 6500 universities around the world.

“This result confirms that Moscow State University is one of the leading universities in the world. I would like to emphasize once again, though, that ranking is not a football game where we should score a goal. The main task of the university is to develop in the way to prepare high quality specialists” - says MSU rector, Academician Victor Sadovnichiy.
