How the Global List Is Prepared

This prestigious global list is a matter of great responsibility and is prepared with the help of extensive research and data collection method. The performance indicators against which all the universities are measured are grouped as: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).

Based on these 5 indicators the universities are judged and ranked. The highest scorers achieve the top place in the list and followed by the other low scorers.

Universities are excluded from the list if they do not teach undergraduates. Data for rankings are provided by the Institutions themselves as they sign off their institutional data for use in the rankings. various matrics play important role in preparing the final score and delivering of the finalised list. The process is long and carefully crafted.
