Based on experience from Finland and using the example of Aalto University especially, in a recent Chronicle article, A. Labi reports of how various universities in a number of European countries are going through mergers. While in Norway the amount of universities is increasing, having just acquired a new university – University of Nordland (Earlier Bodø University College),the article in Chronicle indicates that in Finland the amount of universities has decreased from 20 to 15 in the last few years. Mergers have also been taking places in countries like Belgium, Germany, and Sweden – both being initiated bottom-up, but also through government policy to create more comprehensive institutions.
The article argues that the mergers have been underpinned by concerns for autonomy, but a major motivation has also been the goal to improve the position in international rankings. The article quotes S. Marginson who argued that: “Many nations are looking to put together areas of research strength so that it will show up in the rankings. It’s really just simply a matter of the way the index works.”
The question is whether this motivation rooted in rankings actually would have an effect on the quality of institutions? Summarising the experience from a number of countries world wide, G. and K. Harman have argued in an earlier article in Tertiary Education and Management that while institutional mergers are often contested, “sensibly conceived and well-managed mergers, with due sensitivity being paid to cultural and human issues, can produce substantial longer-term benefits“. The question is whether university mergers motivated by rankings are conducted in this manner?
Universities in Finland are famous around the world. There are few private universities, the other are under the Ministry of Culture and the Finnish education. Universities are designed to train students theoretically and practically in specific areas of knowledge.Every major city in Finland has at least one university, allowing you to choose according to your preferences the city of your studies without constraints.Below we are representing the complete list of universities in Finland you can get important information by just click on the university name.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
