MEPhI Rector Mikhail Strikhanov says that a distinctive feature of RUR Ranking is that it takes into account the university's main activities and stability in the methodology. This allows universities to monitor, to a certain extent, their development over a sufficiently long period of time, since the ranking has existed for ten years. During this time, MEPhI has significantly strengthened its position in the global RUR Ranking, rising from 475th in the world in 2010 to 157th in 2019.

According to Andrey Rudskoy, Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Rector of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, the university ranking helps applicants make a choice and understand the university strengths.

Regarding the positions of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in RUR Ranking, there are improvements in all areas of activity. For a large university such as the Polytech, it is a very important and difficult task to maintain constant growth of indicators. Today the university initiates new activities, transforms the internal environment and modifies interaction with the external one.
