World University Rankings 2016-2017 by subject: business and economics

The 2016-2017 Times Higher Education World University Rankings’ business and economics league table judges world class universities across all of their core missions, using 13 separate performance indicators. It is a ranking of universities’ overall broad provision in the fields of business and economics, as opposed to a ranking of individual business schools or specific degree programmes, and it covers academic prestige and research excellence as well as the teaching environment with an emphasis on the undergraduate experience.  Only institutions with significant undergraduate numbers in these fields are considered, so graduate-only institutions do not appear.
