In conjunction with 4th QS-MAPLE, an exclusive QS rankings session will be conducted after the main conference on Thursday, May 8, 2014. This year’s rankings workshop will be a very special one: QS World University Rankings: Arab World.
The QS Intelligence Unit aims to execute a regional ranking that enables us to dig deeper into what is happening in the developing economies of the Arab world. Rather than a sole source of information pertaining to quality, this ranking should also be seen as a tool that can help improve transparency and accountability in the regional and global market of higher education.
We would like to kick-off this project with you helping us identify most relevant indicators for evaluating universities in the Arab world according to feasibility, applicability and priority of those indicators, measuring key features such as research and teaching quality, graduate employability, internationalization, inclusion, university output, innovation and knowledge transfer, third mission or infrastructure. Your input will be essential in defining a strong yet practical methodology for which we are able to collect data as complete and accurate as possible.
