RUDN University’s new successes in the field of modern languages, law, oil and gas business, and computer science ... The university strengthens its position in 11 QS rankings

The QS ranking agency has presented the QS WUR by Subject 2021 rankings — lists of the best universities in the world in specific subjects. RUDN has shown rapid growth in the areas of “Modern Languages”, “Linguistics”, “Mathematics”, “Economics and Econometrics” and “Chemistry”, and for the first time entered the list of the best in the world in the subjects “Oil and Gas Business”, “Law”, " Business and Management “, and “Computer Science”.

  • 151-200 place — Law
  • 451-500 place — Business and Management
  • 451-500 place — Computer Science

Branch rankings

  • Arts & Humanities — 245 place (vs 345 place in 2020)
  • Social Sciences & Management — 256 place (vs 401-450 place in 2020)

Last year, RUDN University was in 5 subject and 2 branch rankings. We have improved our positions in all areas and achieved recognition in 4 more subjects.

“I would like to thank the entire RUDN University staff for their success in the QS subject rankings. Last year, RUDN University was presented in five subject rankings — ‘Modern Languages’, ‘Linguistics’, ‘Economics and Econometrics’ ‘Mathematics’ and ‘Chemistry’. In all these rankings, we have moved forward, and also achieved recognition in four new subject areas — ‘Oil and Gas Business’, ‘Law’, ‘Business and Management’, and ‘Computer Science’. RUDN University showed the best result in the subject ranking ‘Modern Languages’ — for the first time we entered the top 100. I would also like to thank our chemists who provided the basic scientometric indicators for becoming one of the best universities in the oil and gas business. I am also very pleased that the university immediately got into the top 200 of the ranking in Law,” said Oleg Yastrebov, Rector of RUDN University.

The best result of RUDN University is in Modern Languages. RUDN University is in the top 100 of the world. In particular, this happened due to the fact that the number of votes of academic experts doubled over the year. Linguists from the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia were voted for from European countries, India and China. RUDN University received the votes of employers from Germany and South Korea for the first time. Advances in science are also noticeable — for example, our specialized journals have become better indexed in international databases. The Russian Journal of Linguistics has already moved up to the second quartile of the Scopus database. Another RUDN journal, Rusistika (Russian Studies), has been included in the Scopus list. RUDN University linguists have relied on interdisciplinarity — they conducted research at the intersection of linguistics, pedagogy, social psychology, migration and urban studies. There are also flagship projects for the study of languages in a minority situation, including migrants’ situations

In 2017, RUDN University scientists constructed a new explicit second-order precision difference scheme using modern computer algebra methods for 2-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations (NSE) [1]. This year, our mathematicians used a new scheme [2] to construct a numerical solution to the Cauchy problem with initial data (for t=0) as satisfying the continuity equation. Scientists managed to achieve previously unattainable accuracy of the continuity equation.
