Diploma’s from UGent (Flanders) among world’s best
While usual suspects Harvard, Cambridge and Oxford top the list, universities from outside the US or UK are on the rise as well. Ghent University, for example, is represented for the fifth year in a row and climbs to 49th place. Leuven University (KU Leuven) is the second Flanders-based university on the list, in 62nd place.
“No companies from Flanders were consulted in this survey,” adds Anne De Paepe, rector of UGent. “Which proves that our students are highly regarded internationally.” More and more managers have indicated that sustainable collaboration with universities, expertise, and the student’s international profile are becoming more important than the institution’s reputation.
De Paepe: “We’re paying attention to what employers expect and how the work field will evolve in the future. Our many years of experience in stimulating entrepreneurship and the quality of our education play a key role in this.”
