Giannias, Dimitrios A.; Sfakianaki, Eleni
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 8 p726-740 2012
University rankings historically have been based on a number of criteria, the most common being research output and quality. Different approaches have been developed which are surrounded by controversy; nevertheless, university rankings remain popular. It can be noted that due to the global economic recession, they receive further interest since it is believed that education is one of the sectors that countries should invest to improve economic development. The present paper presents a methodology for ranking universities based on research output and quality using as criterion by the CHC (Core of Human Capital) of universities demonstrating how the different positions of academic members of staff can contribute to the evaluation of their institutes at different time periods. The case study is the Greek Departments of Economics. Different scenarios are examined regarding the size of the department and time. The results offer conclusions in terms of university evaluation and strategic recruitment. In this respect, decision-makers can identify where they need to improve and if they are satisfied with their position on the education map. (Contains 8 tables and 4 footnotes.)
