The Université de Montreal took seventh place in a global impact ranking.
The Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that rank universities against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
“We use carefully calibrated indicators to enable comprehensive and balanced comparisons in three major areas: research, public relations and administration,” the ranking website says.
U de M, founded in 1878, ranks seventh in the global rankings together with the Swedish KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
“The Université de Montreal, with its affiliated universities Polytechnique Montreal (engineering) and HEC Montreal (business), is one of the largest university complexes in North America,” says the ranking. “The Université de Montreal has many renowned laboratories, including: MILA, the world’s leading university research center for deep learning; the Institute for Immunological and Cancer Research (IRIC), one of the most productive in its field; and the Center de recherche en droit public (CRDP), the most comprehensive public law research center in Canada. “
The ranking also highlights key figures about the largest French-speaking university in the world, including the number of students per staff of 20.3, the 23% of international students and the 59:41 student ratio.
