Higher Education report lists top 20 universities most likely to challenge elite
“Over the next 10-20 years, there will be unexpected challenges to the establishment. Ambitious, fast-improving universities will take advantage of disruptive global trends that create unique opportunities for innovation.
“Our research suggests the difference between the winners and losers will be strategy. No-one will become world class by chance. The rising “Class of 2030” will balance long-term vision with short-term execution, linked together by strong management and culture.
“They will have a clear view of the changing world and their role in it, and a robust plan to get the resources, people and culture they need to be successful.
“They will innovate, harnessing new partnerships, new networks, new resources and new institutional models. The outward-looking and impact-focussed institutions will beat the inward-looking and complacent.”
“We are delighted to feature in this list of ‘rising stars’ in global Higher Education, in recognition of the huge strides we have taken over recent years in research and innovation.
“We continue to invest significantly in excellent staff and facilities in order to deliver our very ambitious strategic plans.”
