Positive Impact through Quality Education – Kozminski University Again in THE Times Higher Education Impact Rankings


Kozminski University has once again been recognized in this year's THE Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, placing among the top universities worldwide making a positive impact on the future by pursuing global sustainability goals. The university stands out internationally, maintaining the highest position in Poland in the area of quality education.

THE Times Higher Education Impact Rankings assess universities globally on their achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals, adopted by all UN member states, acknowledge that eradicating poverty and other deprivations must be coupled with strategies to improve health and education, reduce inequality, stimulate economic growth, and address climate change and its impacts.

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, which evaluate the contributions of universities towards sustainable development goals, is a unique initiative, emphasizes Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of Kozminski University. They serve as a catalyst for change, a driving force for further action, a moment to reflect on past achievements, and an opportunity to highlight the tremendous work universities have already accomplished. We are proud that our commitment to improving the quality of education is recognized internationally, confirming that we are moving in the right direction.

Universities participate in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings by submitting data on their performance in at least three chosen SDG sustainability goals and the mandatory SDG 17. They are then scored and ranked accordingly. This year, Kozminski University achieved the highest score among Polish universities for SDG 4 – Quality Education.

Kozminski University was the first Polish university to establish a sustainable development program for 2020–2030. It is also a pioneer in business ethics education and training sustainability experts. The university co–organizes the ESG Ranking – Responsible Management and has long implemented pro–environmental solutions on its campus.

Kozminski University is dedicated to providing good, responsible education for future leaders," says Dr. Anna M. Gorska, Rector's Impact Advisor at Kozminski University. "It is crucial to teach the next generation about ethics and responsibility and to set a good example. The Sustainable Development Goals we are implementing are a significant part of creating a better world.
