Vietnamese Universities have broken into the Asia Top 100 list for the first time

On June 1st, Times Higher Education (THE) announced the ranking of Asian universities in 2022 (THE Asia University Rankings 2022). Accordingly, Ton Duc Thang University ranked 73rd while Duy Tan University is listed 91st, which marks the first time ever that Vietnamese universities are included in the Asia top 100.
Besides, Vietnam has three others universities ranked. They are Vietnam National University (VNU) in Hanoi, placed in the 301–350 range; Vietnam National University in HCM City, 401–500; and Hanoi University of Science and Technology in the 500+ group. Of note, the University of Danang is listed as a reporter, which is an educational institution that provided data but is not eligible for ranking.
The THE Asia University Rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions. The performance indicators are grouped into five areas: teaching (25%); research (30%); citations (30%); international outlook (7.5%); and industry income (7.5%).
With this assessment, universities with strengths in research have an advantage. Among the Vietnamese institutions, VNU achieved the highest score in the area of teaching with 22.3. Meanwhile, Ton Duc Thang University has a citation criteria score of 99.3/100 and Duy Tan University even achieved absolute perfection in this criterion. VNU HCMC maintained its strength in industry income with 40.8.
