Smart Education in Australia Update : AUT University Art and Design in global top 50.

AUT University has ranked in two of the six new disciplines added to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2015, with a ranking of 42= for Art and Design and 151-200 for Business and Management Studies. AUT also ranked in the top 101-150 for Accounting and Finance and 251-300 for ComputerScience and Information Systems.

All New Zealand universities made the global top 400 in at least one discipline, securing a total of 130 placements across the 36 subjects ranked. Of these, 30 are new entries for 2015. Compared to 2014, 38 positions have remained the same, 26 positions have improved and 36 have lost ground, in some cases minimally so.

Subjects from more than 2100 universities from around the globe were assessed. The rankings are based on research citations, alongside reputational surveys of over 126,000 academics and graduate employers worldwide.

The expert opinion of 85,062 academics who identified the leading institutions within their field and region of expertise, and 41,910 employers who identified the universities that have produced outstanding graduates in a given discipline area, informed the results, alongside the analysis of 17.3 million research papers and 100 million citations (Scopus/Elsevier bibliometric database).

“These rankings provide the most comprehensive global comparison of universities yet at individual subject level,” says QS Head of Research Ben Sowter. “The world-class performance of the New Zealand institutions reflects their high-impact research and outstanding reputation among an industry-leading sample of global academic experts and graduate employers.”

“While the dominant players remain the US and the UK, our ranking shows that academic excellence is widely distributed around the globe. The 894 universities ranked in at least one subject are based in 60 different countries”, says Sowter.
