Ton Duc Thang University ranked among world’s top 1,000

Ton Duc Thang University in Ho Chi Minh City has become the first in Vietnam to be ranked in the Academic Ranking of World Universities’ top 1,000.

The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) is the first global university ranking with multifarious indicators. It is published and copyrighted annually by Shanghai Ranking Consultancy, an independent organization focusing on higher education.

Ton Duc Thang is in 901-1000th place in the list that was released Thursday.

Established as a private school in 1997 by the Ho Chi Minh City Federation of Labor, Ton Duc Thang became a public school in 2008 after being taken over by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor. It has two campuses in HCMC.

The top three in this year’s ARWU remain unchanged from last year: the U.S.’s Harvard University and Stanford followed by the University of Cambridge in Britain.

ARWU is considered one of the world’s most prestigious university rankings along with the QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education.

It comes up with the final list by analyzing four factors: education quality (10 percent), faculty quality (40 percent), scientific research (40 percent), and average academic productivity per capita (10 percent).

Last December it had been named by the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking among the 300 most sustainable universities in the world. It was ranked 182nd while Tra Vinh University, another Vietnamese school in the southern province of the same name, was ranked 256th.
