CAU Ranks 7th in 2017 JoongAng Ilbo University Rankings for Two Consecutive Years

Name 관리자 Date 2017.11.07 Hit 385

Chung-Ang University (CAU) placed 7th in 2017 JoongAng Ilbo University Rankings for two years in a row.

This year’s overall university ranking targeted a total of 61 universities which have more than four among six faculties (Humanities, Social science, Natural science, Engineering, Medicine, and Arts and Sports). This overall ranking was drawn based on four key categories–Educational condition (13 sub-indices with 100 points), Faculty research (10 sub-indices with 100 points), Teaching and student performance (6 sub-indices with 70 points), and Reputation (4 sub-indices with 30 points)–which include 33 assessment sub-indices, and the accumulated points of four categories stand at 300.

Among universities ranking in the range of 6th to 10th places, CAU only maintained its position as the 7th best university in Korea compared to 2016 JoongAng Ilbo University Rankings. Meanwhile, there was a considerable fluctuation in other universities’ rankings. For instance, Sogang University placed 6th in 2017 (12th in 2016), Inha University 8th (10th in 2016), Hanyang University ERICA Campus 9th (8th in 2016), Kyunghee University 10th (8th in 2016), and Ewha Womans University 10th (6th in 2016).

To look into the four key categories more closely, CAU ranked 5th in “faulty research,” up from 6th last year. This achievement was possible due to a huge increase in sub-indices such as external research funds and publications in the fields of humanities or social science per faculty member and a higher point in citations in international journals. Still, CAU recorded lower places in research paper published in international journals, citations in Korean journals, and revenues from university-industry collaboration per faculty member year on year.

Among sub-indices of “educational condition,” CAU witnessed a drastic rise in contribution-to-revenue ratio, placing 6th from 38th last year. It is because CAU held various fundraising events in an effort to celebrate its centennial anniversary in recent months. In the meantime, CAU registered relatively lower rankings in terms of scholarship-to-tuition ratio, the rate of courses provided by full-time faculty members, and educational expenditure-to-tuition ratio.

With respect to “student performance,” CAU drew a fruitful result in the rate of entrepreneurship-related education which has been increasingly important since last year. This indicates that CAU has properly responded to a changing social need, where entrepreneurship together with employment are prioritized. Meanwhile, CAU’s dropout rate and student participation rate in practical learning programs were decreased compared to last year.

Furthermore, when it comes to “reputation,” CAU ranked 8th in a sub-index of university producing competitive human resources from the perspective of the business community/university with enormous potential, down from 6th last year, while placing 10th in a sub-index of university hugely contributing to the nation as well as the local community, up from 11th last year.

In addition to the overall ranking, university rankings by faculty were also released. According to this, CAU placed 11th, 7th, 14th, and 9th in humanities, social science, natural science, and engineering, respectively. Universities with the following conditions can be included in the university rankings by faculty: Humanities (whose proportion accounts for more than 10% of the total student body or whose number of student exceeds 1,000), Social science (more than 20% or 2,000 students), Natural science (more than 10% or 1,500 students), and Engineering (more than 20% or 2,500 students).

CAU, based on this year’s JoongAng Ilbo University Rankings, plans to explore ways to complement its weaknesses. Once CAU devises such measures, it will proactively put them in place under the cooperative framework among administrative departments and the relevant members so that it can achieve sustainable growth.
