Chung-Ang University (CAU) ranked 60th in overall Asia University rankings in 2017, up from 70th last year. Among Korean universities, CAU ranked 8th in teaching (or learning environment), 10th in research, and 3rd in international outlook. Above all, in terms of overall rankings, CAU continued to rise over the last three years from 2014 to 2016, from 100th in 2014 to 97th in 2015 to 70th in 2016.
As mentioned in an article covered by Maeil Business News Korea, after Doosan Group was incorporated as an educational institution of CAU in 2008, CAU developed an educational strategy and has implemented it so as to achieve its mid-to-long term development initiative “CAU2018+.” As part of an effort to do so, CAU has not only assessed the university itself annually from 2007, but adopted a Management by Objective (MBO) system to evaluate its colleges, schools, and departments from 2014 and, since then, has managed its objectives effectively through evaluating its objective-based performance and international competitiveness annually. Based on this, CAU has provided merit-based rewards for excellent colleges, schools, and departments.
In addition, CAU has made a continuing effort to introduce itself to the world by signing Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) on joint research and student exchange with numerous overseas institutions. Furthermore, CAU, with the purpose of improving the quality of research projects, launched a new financial support system for promoting joint research projects with overseas institutions from 2015.
CAU also aims to rank within the top ten out of Korean universities in terms of citation and industry income. In order to do so, CAU spares no effort into not only improving polices to boost its research quality, but setting forth a policy to further enhance industry-university collaboration.
Times Higher Education (THE) assesses Asian universities according to the following five categories as well as thirteen sub-categories: teaching/learning environment (25%), research in terms of its volume, income, and reputation (30%), citation/research influence (30%), international outlook in terms of staff, students, and research (7.5%), and industry income/knowledge transfer (7.5%).
