The Politecnico di Milano is again first in the list of the best Italian universities.
The “Qs World University Rankings 2022”, the most prestigious ranking of universities around the world, once again rewards the Politecnico di Milano, which is confirmed as the best Italian university.
There are 41 Italian universities in the ranking, of which five are Milanese. The Politecnico proves (once again) to be the first Italian in the standings, despite the drop of five positions compared to last year. His is position number 142.
The Statale is 316th, San Raffaele 390th, Bicocca 450th and the University of the Sacred Heart is in the range between seats 551 and 560.
The evaluation criteria that constitute the backbone of the list are different: from academic reputation, to the opinion of employers, to the ratio of teachers and students, to published research and to the percentage of foreign students and teachers.
“The best Italian universities, despite their undisputed excellence, – underlined Ben Sowter, director of the research department of Qs Sowter – struggle to compete globally in some indicators, especially those that assess the level of internationalization of the teaching staff and learners and for the ratio of teachers to students. This year, there is also a subdued performance in the indicator that measures popularity among the academic community and international employers, with some positive exceptions. In light of a world profoundly marked by the health emergency, the overall result of Italy in this ranking is satisfactory “.
