 Top financial universities are favored by candidates


If the comprehensive ranking is to measure the overall strength of a university, the quality of students is more representative of the attractiveness of a university to candidates. Maybe it is more meaningful for the quality of the candidates to fill in the form of the rankings.

Beijing and Shanghai attract high score candidates

Among the top 20 universities, 13 are located in Beijing and Shanghai. In contrast, only nine schools in Beijing and Shanghai are in the top 20 in the soft science rankings of Chinas best universities.

In addition, Nankai University and Tianjin University, which are also located in the municipality directly under the central government, also attracted better students. The comprehensive rankings of the two universities are 19 and 21 respectively, but the freshmen quality ranking is 11 and 18 respectively.

Zhejiang University, Huazhong University of science and technology and Wuhan University, located in the provincial capital cities, have significantly lower freshmen quality ranking than their respective comprehensive rankings.

It is worth mentioning in particular that Sun Yat sen University, the 10th best university in China in soft science, is located in the first tier city of Guangzhou, but it does not even rank in the top 20 of freshmen quality ranking, only ranking 27th. Sun Yat sen University is also known as a cost-effective school.

Generally speaking, the admission score has a great relationship with the enrollment scale of the University. The more the enrollment number is, the lower the admission score is. Zhejiang University, Huazhong University of science and technology, Wuhan University and Zhongshan University are all big undergraduate students.

In addition, the university located in the provincial capital city has a relatively large enrollment scale in the province. Take Sun Yat sen University as an example. In 2019, the university plans to enroll 7730 students nationwide, of which 3602 students are planned to enroll in Guangdong, accounting for about 46.6%. For the students in this province, they enjoy the advantage of relatively easy access to famous schools, but it also reduces the admission score to a certain extent.

The reporter also compared the freshmen quality ranking and comprehensive ranking of some other colleges and universities, such as Harbin Institute of technology, which ranks 12th in terms of student source; Jilin University, which ranks 24th, ranks 63rd; Lanzhou University, which ranks 40th, ranks 79th.

For examinees, if they want to make a choice between the city, the school and the major, sometimes they have to compromise on one or two. But it also means that a score that seems to be less competitive is likely to pick a relatively good school or major in a cold area.

Financial Colleges and universities continue to be popular

From the perspective of the top 20 universities in terms of freshmen quality, the dark horse are Shanghai University of Finance and economics, University of international business and economics, and Central University of Finance and economics. Compared with the comprehensive ranking, their admission score ranking has increased by more than 18 places. And these three universities belong to the financial category.

This is not a unique phenomenon in this years ranking. Financial Colleges and majors continue to be popular choices for high score candidates.

From the perspective of the employment direction of graduates, most of the students in Financial Colleges and universities can enter the financial industry to work, with bright career prospects and relatively competitive treatment.

Zhu Hongjun, director of the Admissions Office of Shanghai University of Finance and economics, said in an interview recently that the average graduate of Shanghai University of Finance and economics obtained 1.87 employment opportunities, 2.76 for masters degree and 2.29 for doctors degree. The high degree of graduates (more than 64.6%) concentrated in high salary industries such as accounting firms, banks, consulting, Internet, real estate, etc. According to the survey of Ipin company of artificial intelligence, the salary of Shangcai students five years after graduation is second only to Tsinghua University from 2016 to 2017 (no further statistics will be made), ranking the second in mainland universities.

A teacher from the school of economics and management of a University of science and technology in Guangdong told the 21st century economic reporter that the changes in the popularity of disciplines are dynamic, and the reasons behind it are closely related to employment. For a long time, even in a strong school of engineering, it is often the school of economics and management that has accepted high-grade students. However, in recent years, there has been a new trend. The popularity of financial and economic majors has declined, not as good as computer related majors. According to the employment report of Chinese college students released by Mycos Research Institute, the average income of 2019 undergraduate graduates is 5440 yuan, with the highest monthly income of 6858 yuan for computer majors and 5638 yuan for finance majors. From the perspective of monthly income after five years of work, the computer major in the undergraduate major category continued to occupy the first place, reaching 13790 yuan.
