Forbes magazine has presented a new rating of the 100 best Russian universities with a modified assessment methodology. Southern Federal University took the 20th position and beat all the universities of the Southern Federal District.
Forbes magazine analysts not only evaluate the quality of education, but also determine which University graduates are able to enter the Forbes list or “become part of the Russian political elite”.
Southern Federal University improved its performance in the ranking and this year took the 20th place, gaining 33.64 points. In 2018, Southern Federal University was only in the 47th position.
During the study, Forbes magazine found out which university graduates are appreciated by employers and tracked the presence of universities in the international ratings of QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education.
