University Impact Rankings 2019 by SDG: decent work and economic growth

The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach, and stewardship.

This table on SDG 8 – decent work and economic growth measures universities’ economics research, their employment practices and the share of students taking work placements.

The list includes 291 universities from 68 countries.

The metrics were developed in partnership with Vertigo Ventures.
