Universities are top institutions for learning and advancement of human knowledge. Sometimes, it is difficult to decide with university is the best. A metric that can be used is to identify the number of Nobel Laureates that a university has produced over the years.
The Nobel Prizes were established by Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite in his will. The prizes were first awarded in Chemistry, Literature, Peace, Physics, and Physiology or Medicine in 1901 while in 1968, Sweden’s central bank, Sveriges Riksbank, established the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, which, although not a Nobel Prize, has become informally known as the “Nobel Prize in Economics”.
