Universities of high quality are among the reasons why Copenhagen has been ranked the third richest city in the world in terms of human capital, writes the Danish daily MetroXpress.
A new survey from The Economist Intelligence Unit has benchmarked the global competitiveness in 120 of the world’s largest cities, acknowledging that cities are more important than ever to the world’s societal and economic development.
In connection with this, the survey ranks the human capital of each city on a variety of parameters such as the educational system, population growth, quality of healthcare system and entrepreneurship, among others.
In this category, the survey finds Copenhagen to be number three – only surpassed by Dublin and Hong Kong.
Copenhagen leads in international surveys.
It is far from the first time that Copenhagen takes the lead in international surveys.
Recently, Greater Copenhagen was ranked as the third best region in Europe for foreign companies to place their investments.
The top placement was given in the report “European Cities and Regions of the Future 2012/2013” in the British fDi Magazine published by The Financial Times.
