Top Ethiopian Universities Of 2015: The Latest Ranking


A  recent global ranking of the top 32 universities in Ethiopia for 2015 has been made public, and the result is something unconnected to what we have seen previous years. It  appears that some Universities who were not excited with their formal position in 2014 have worked harder to make sure that they reach the top of the list in order to be ranked among the best.  Based on Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, some of the universities that were ranked higher in Ethiopia as at 2014, are no longer worthy of the title and as such, we have other leading schools.

And scrolling down further, you would see another ranking done by a different web ranking in 2015 where only 14 universities made the list and also top 15 African universities….see for yourself which Ethiopian university made the list. More importantly, note that in the world ranking, a total of 32 Ethiopian Universities made the list.
