DUBAI, July 29, 2018

Modul University Dubai, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments, said that its Vienna campus has been named the best 25 Universities for “Top Cited Publications” globally for its research and publications.

The ranking unveiled recently by U-Multirank – one of the world’s leading independent ranking institutions funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme, applies a multi-dimensional, user-driven approach to international ranking of higher education institutions.

Modul University is the only Austrian university in the prestigious list –No. 12 globally and third in Europe – alongside Harvard, Oxford, LBS, Yale and Princeton University, just to name a few.

Coinciding with this global recognition, Modul University Dubai has reiterated its commitment to its fully-integrated research center, the Centre for Sustainability through Research and Education (CSRE).

CSRE’s approach is focused on bridging skill-set and knowledge-gap between academia, corporations, institutions and the society at large. Its mission includes supporting the region’s efforts in driving sustainability through investment in education & research; promoting Dubai and the UAE as a center of excellence for sustainability & education; and establishing a regional hub for collaboration between industry, policy makers & NGOs.

Zaid Maleh, managing director of Modul University Dubai, said: “The latest ranking of Modul University amongst the world’s best universities is an extremely proud milestone in Modul’s long legacy and the result of years of investment into research and profound academic excellence. Modul University Dubai is committed to carry forward this ethos of applied research and utilize the methodological and corporate competence of its researchers to drive innovation and progress.”

The ranking by U-Multirank for “Top Cited Publications” is considered amongst the most prestigious categories in higher education as it measures the international research excellence of universities against their publications in the top decile of frequently cited articles worldwide. Frequent citations indicate the impact the publications of a university have had on the scientific debate globally. – TradeArabia News Service
