Shanghai Ranking - Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2017: UT Capitole among the top 50 world universities in economics.

from June 30, 2017 to July 31, 2017

Toulouse Capitole University, with the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), is the only French higher education institution ranked among the 2017 top 50 of the prestigious Shangai ranking of academic subjects « Social Sciences -Economics».

The University ranks 45th and TSE ranks 17th, thus singling out Toulouse Capitole University as  the only French university listed in the top 50 of the world best universities in economics.

It is worth mentioning that both UT1 and TSE have been regularly listed in the academic ranking of world universities; UT1 was already listed among the 76-100 in 2009 and 2012, then among the 151-200 in 2013; TSE was ranked 35th in 2015 and 48th in 2016. Both are this year among the 50.

Beyond these major achievements, Toulouse Capitole University is now also listed for two other academic subjects.

It ranks among the 151-200 in Social Sciences – Statistics and among the 201-500 in Natural Sciences - Mathematics.

This success is largely due to the significant number of researchers working in the disciplines.

Corinne Mascala, Chancellor of the University, celebrates these outstanding results « which have not been achieved by accident ». This international recognition results from the outstanding efforts and commitment of the whole academic community and from the highly demanding hiring policy of researchers-lecturers over the last few years. She also underscores that, after gaining greater international visibility thanks to the Nobel Prize in Economics awarded to Jean Tirole in 2014, Toulouse Capitole University can be praised for « the high-flying quality and dedication of the researchers and administrative staff at TSE ». All these achievements acknowledge the commitment to excellence started over 30 years ago under the aegis of Jean-Jacques Laffont who was inspired by the Anglo-Saxon model in economic science.
Toulouse Capitole University international outreach is supported by all its departments and schools with a view to further enhance it in the future.
