Default University Rankings

Article from the economist.

(if this is against board rules please do remove the link ><)

One interesting point near the endish of the article: "However good a university’s teaching may be, a lowly ranking carries a stigma, at least in some eyes. The Netherlands, for example, has a special visa programme for those holding masters degrees from universities that come in the top 150 in two international league tables."

Interesting no? XD Particularly since I really did hold the opinion that uni rankings don't really matter. I wonder if there are other instances where uni rankings make a difference. =d
