European University Institute Ranking 2017

The European University Institute ranking in the GPA system is Top 50 / Tier 2.

EUI is a remarkable institution because of its origins and legal status: it was established by European governments through a special convention signed at the highest level. It has its campus (and headquarters) near Florence, Italy. EUI offers highly regarded PhD programs and publishes the dissertations online. Many graduates have successful careers in European institutions. It has limited name recognition but commands respect when interviewee understand its special status.

Its Internet communication is disappointing and, together with limited globalization, brings it close to Tier 3.
