The Next MIT?

June 22, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

The world’s best ranked educational institution have one thing in common – they’re incredibly old. But how about the schools that are less than 50 years old? Could these fast rising stars be the next MIT? Joyce Lau reported on the lists of top-ranked schools under the age of 50:

  • Asian and European schools dominate. Hong Kong and South Korea do particularly well.
  • The United States which is traditionally an academic powerhouse had very few well-regarded universities that were under 50.
  • The BRIC countries disappointed. While Brazil had a small presence, Russia, India and China did not feature.
