Erasmus School of Economics strives to become the best in its disciplines (economics, econometrics) and seeks to achieve excellence both in its research and teaching. This can be measured by its performance in rankings.

There are several international university rankings which Erasmus School of Economics participates in that are considered to be most influential ones. QS World University Ranking, Times Higher Education Ranking and Academic  Ranking of World Universities. Most of the ranking are focused on research, but some of them became multi-dimensional in the past few years.  The above mentioned influential rankings have determined that there is a demand for a more balanced ranking system that is based on more indicators besides research. Thus, they have adjusted their methodology by incorporating more indicators, which definitely give a more balanced and accurate view of a university.

QS World University Rankings                            
QS World University Rankings is one of such multi-faceted rankings, where Erasmus School of Economics scores particularly well when it come to Economics/Econometrics. The research currently considers over 2,000 universities, and ranks over 700.


The Times Higher Education                          
The Times Higher Education ranking is the only global ranking that judges world class universities across a number of core disciplines such as research, teaching, knowledge valorization and internationalisation. 


The Academic Ranking of World Universities
Six different objective indicators are used to rank world universities: alumni or staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields medals, number of researchers with most citations selected by Thomson scientific, number of articles published in journals and, of course, per capita performance with respect to the size of an institution. Over 1000 universities are actually ranked by ARWU every year.


Dutch Economist Top 40
Since last year the ESE calculates the top 40 of Dutch (business) economists, as well as the Top 10 of Dutch (business) economics departments, based on output in international academic publications. This was previously done by CentER.
