For the first time in the 21-year history of the national University Ranking prepared by the Educational Foundation "Perspektywy", Kozminski University is the sole leader of the ranking and it advanced to the first place among all business/economic universities in Poland.

Previously we had already stood on the podium, but today we have shown that a relatively young private university, which is only 27 years old, can compete on equal grounds with a public university with a long-established leadership position.

The podium of this year's "Perspektywy" national ranking for best business/economic university:

  1. Kozminski University
  2. Warsaw School of Economics
  3. Poznan University of Economics and Business

Kozminski University also advanced to the 15th place in the general ranking of Academic Universities. Additionally, Kozminski University has also been classified as the #1 private university, and it has maintained this position for 21 consecutive years.

- It is a success of our excellent research and teaching staff, ambitious research projects developed at the university, efficient administrative staff, but most of all, it is the merit of our graduates, who, while going into the world with the Kozminski University diploma, achieve spectacular successes both as managers in the corporate world and developing their own businesses. Reading in the media about their advances to the highest positions in companies or public institutions, we increasingly often find out that our graduates become CEOs. We also have representatives of our alumni in Poland's ranking of the most wealty individuals. So, undoubtedly we are already the Polish equivalent of Harvard - comments Prof. Witold T. Bielecki, Rector of KU.

KU has already distanced the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH) several times, but only in foreign rankings prepared by the Financial Times. It is in this ranking, that graduates' careers progress and compliance with the standards set by universally recognized standards are valued most of all, and Kozminski University is the only institution in Poland to have the three most important business education accreditations: EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA.

- It turns out that achieving success abroad is sometimes easier than gaining recognition in one's own country, that is why we are particularly happy with today's result of the national "Perspektywy" Ranking. It is a useful tool for this year's high school graduates to choose ther future educational path. - said Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector-Elect of KU.

The awarding ceremony of this year's ranking had a unique setting, as it was done in compliance with the sanitary regime caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ceremony was attended by the rectors and representatives of universities, and the guest of honour was Wojciech Murdzek, Minister of Science and Higher Education, who congratulated the laureates.

In 2020, the best academic university in Poland is the Jagiellonian University, the best technical university is the Warsaw University of Technology, in the field of medicine is the Gdańsk Medical University, and the best agricultural university is the Warsaw University of Life Sciences.
