For the past 15 years, VŠE has regularly been ranked among the top three universities from Central and Eastern Europe in the Eduniversal rankings, which include a total of 21 countries. Based on selected criteria, a total of 1,000 business schools are divided into five groups, which are characterised by the number of Palmes of Excellence. Only the top 100 schools can receive five palm leaves, which signify that they are universities with strong global influence, and VŠE is one of them this year.

This is the fifteenth year that Eduniversal has ranked business-oriented universities from 154 countries in nine regions of the world (the top three places for each region are always announced). The first step in compiling the annual rankings is the selection of the top 1,000 universities by an eleven-member International Scientific Committee (ISC). These schools are evaluated on the basis of a number of criteria, which mainly measure their degree of internationalisation, the reputation and renown of the school in the region concerned, and their quality. The third equally important step is the election of the rectors and deans of the selected 1,000 universities. In their election, they answer the question: “Which school would you recommend to your students if they wanted to study in that country?”

Eduniversal is a global ranking of management schools and an evaluation agency specializing in higher education. The organisation is based in Paris and has been operating internationally since 2007. It compiles two rankings each year – a ranking of the 1,000 best business schools and a ranking of the 4,000 best master’s and MBA programs. These rankings are for students deciding which university to choose in one of the following nine geographic regions: Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, Eurasia and the Middle East, East Asia, Latin America, North America, Oceania, Western Europe.
