NDO/VNA – Several Vietnamese universities have been named in Times Higher Education (THE)’s two new subject rankings – Business and Economics, and Social Sciences – for 2022.

In the field of Business and Economics, Ho Chi Minh City-based Ton Duc Thang University was placed in the Top 201 – 250 group, the highest ranking of Vietnam, while Vietnam National University – HCM City (VNU-HCM) ranked among the 601+ group.

For the first time, Vietnamese educational establishments have secured place in the Social Sciences ranking. The universities included in the ranking were Ton Duc Thang University, which is in the 251 - 300 group, Vietnam National University Hanoi in the 501 – 600, and VNU-HCM in the 601+ group.

THE World University Rankings by Subject is based on five performance indicators, namely citation, industry income, international outlook, research and teaching.

THE’s Business and Economics ranking assesses universities by their performance in the disciplines of business and management, accounting and finance, and economics and econometrics.

The Social Sciences table, meanwhile, highlights the universities that are leading across communication and media studies, politics and international studies (including development studies), sociology and geography. It is the first time the VNUHCM has secured a place in the ranking.

To date, THE has announced the rankings for 10 out of its 11 subjects, seven of which featured Vietnamese universities.
