Remarkable Performance in Research Assessment Exercise 2020

HKUST Business School was ranked the top overall standing by the Panel of Business and Economics and a “world leading” and “internationally excellent” school among all universities in Hong Kong in the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2020 organized by the University Grants Committee (UGC). These impressive results are a testament to our ongoing effort in driving research excellence. The School was also rated no. 1 in the previous RAE in 2014, and the latest edition reinforces our leading position in research.

By using international benchmarks to delineate their relative strengths, RAE assesses the performance of all UGC-funded universities in Hong Kong based on their research quality. Additionally, RAE 2020 featured new assessment elements in research impact and environment. Find out more about the details of the latest RAE results here.
