Ajou University climbed one spot to rank 12th from 13th last year in the 2017 Joongang Ilbo University Evaluation.


On October 23rd, The Joongang Ilbo announced the results of its University Evaluation, which assessed sixty-one four-year universities with at least four colleges from among the humanities, social sciences, engineering, natural sciences, medicine, and the arts and physical education. The daily newspaper applies 33 criteria in such areas as Educational Environment, Faculty Research, Efforts and Achievement in Student Education, and Reputation.


Ajou University received 175 points out of the maximum 300. By area, it ranked 10th in Efforts and Achievement in Student Education and 11th in Reputation. The Efforts and Achievement in Student Education criterion considers student employment and student participation in on-site internships and business start-up education as well as the number of businesses started by graduates, etc. The Reputation criterion is based on surveys of staff members in charge of human resources at corporations and high school teachers.


In Educational Environment, the University took 19th place, up from 21st last year. This criterion looks at the number of faculty members, lecture size, students living in dormitories and receiving scholarships, etc. In addition, the University performed relatively better in Globalization – 6th in the diversity of foreign students and 14th in exchange students.


The ranking in Faculty Research also advanced seven places to 17th from 24th the previous year. In particular, performance improved in the categories of income earned by professors from technology transfer and industry-academia cooperation as well as the citation of papers authored and books published/translated by professors in the humanities and social sciences.


In the evaluation of colleges, Ajou was ranked 10th in natural sciences, 16th in engineering, and 28th in social sciences, respectively. The University’s College of Humanities was not assessed because the share of its students is less than ten percent of the total in attendance.
