QS World University Ranking: Politecnico among top 10% world universities

Our university is confirmed as the first in Italy and reaches the 139th place in the world

Our climb of the most important university ranking in the world continues: for the first year the Politecnico di Milano enters the top 10% of global universities of excellence, reaching the 139th position in the world and confirming the 1st position in Italy in the prestigious Qs World University Ranking 2023.

These data confirm the positive trend of our university, which in the last six years has climbed 48 positions.

In detail, the Politecnico reaches the 96th position in the world in Academic reputation, an indicator that evaluates the opinions of over 150,000 academics from all over the world. The Employer reputation, which measures the opinion of more than 40,000 employers on the preparation of students who have left the university, sees the Politecnico in 80 positions.

It has been possible to achieve these results thanks to precise actions that we have carried out over the last six years. Among these, consolidating the relationship with the territory and with companies, which passes through the support of local start-ups and business development, with the creation of numerous Joint Research Centers (JRC).

The attractiveness of our university towards foreign professors and researchers and international students is also growing. These data prove the success of the internationalization process that the Politecnico has managed to carry out in recent years, thus becoming one of the "European Leading Universities", capable of leading research and scientific-technological innovation, to participate in sustainable and inclusive development.

The Politecnico di Milano has created strong alliances with the most prestigious European technological universities, with the aim of creating a new academic space for the interaction between scientific progress, business, environment and society.

QS University Ranking analyses almost 2,500 of the best universities in the world, takes into account the indications of about 40,000 employers, evaluates the opinions of more than 150,000 academics. In such a broad and competitive context, the results achieved, and the extraordinary growth of recent years are certainly positive, but not enough.

comments our Rector, Ferruccio Resta.

From this picture emerges an important reflection: why not try to set ourselves a challenging goal? To become part of the first hundred universities in the world. A system goal, which is not impossible for the seventh economic power in the world; complex, but necessary. To do this, we need structural reforms that reward excellence and make our universities attractive globally.
