The Maastricht economists have made a leap forward in the top 100 of the Tilburg University Economics Ranking, going from place 62 to 49. The international list is based on the number of publications from 2007 to 2011 in dozens of top journals. Five Dutch universities are listed, of which Tilburg holds the highest place (21). Nothing has changed at the top: Harvard, Chicago, New York, California.
Another recent publication is the UT Dallas Ranking, which focuses more on business schools. Here, only two Dutch universities are listed: Tilburg (at 38) and Rotterdam (39). The University of Pennsylvania is in first place.
