Pressure to create diamonds

The fierce competition for quality and investment in education has altered the educational power of the West and a number of Asian countries are gradually warming up. There are no exact criteria to ensure an excellent university in the context of global competition. However, according to the president of New York University there are three main points that make up the world's top reputation for an institution that is:

- Urban character

Students and faculty have the opportunity to live in the diversity and vitality of the city. For faculty members, there are opportunities for research and development, and they are exposed to important cultural, intellectual and educational institutions. For students, that is a diverse internship opportunity, a living environment that connects schools and their careers.

New York City

New York City welcomes all global connections to them.

New York has made itself an important factor in the development of Silicon Valley and its influence by other places in science and technology trade. Currently New York has Google, Facebook, IBM Watson, and New York University have partnerships with all of them.

- Global outlook

Six decades ago, the University of New York opened its first overseas site, and until now the university has had undergraduate research and degree programs in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai.

University of New York

- Creativity

The university is always ready to change and pioneers in opening up its policy. The aspiring leaders will have more inventions in the course of the school's development. In 2014, New York University merged with Polytechnic University in 2014 with the goal of "restoring technical majors after 40 years of absence." They are constantly expanding their network of faculty and researchers. As a result of that effort, the university has improved its position in many prestigious university rankings.

New York University is not the only model for "pressure to make diamonds" in the school rankings. Out of the top 50, the University of California has risen 10 places to 31.

Asian paintings are not "pink"

A hot topic for this year's rankings is the rise of Asian nations. This is the first time that three Asian universities have been in the top 30 of the ranking since 2010-11. National University of Singapore increased 2 grades from 24 to 22. Peking University increased 2 grades from 29 to 27. China has seven universities in the top 200, surpassing Hong Kong.

But this picture is not pink for all Asian countries. While Korea still has four schools in the top 200, the school has dropped out. Taiwan University dropped three places to No. 198. The University of Tokyo from 39th to 46th.

University of Taiwan

Asian countries are under pressure from their own rivals in the region and in the world. China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and other countries need to strengthen their reputation and mark the world education map with stronger educational promotion strategies.

There is no absolute result

Of the 1,000 universities ranked this year, no one has excelled in the top five: methodology, teaching, research, income, international prospects.

The results show that there are seven schools of excellence, including four in the UK and one in the US: Oxford University, Cambridge University, Imperial College London, Edinburgh University, Duke University California, Johns Hopkins University. Each university meets a number of different criteria. UK universities are leading the way in teaching, research, citing and internationalization, but industry revenue is inefficient. Three US schools lead the way in teaching, research and industry revenue, but they lose their edge when it comes to international prospects.
