Pakistani universities fail to make mark in Asia’s best university ranking

Being the only Pakistani university to be featured on the list, LUMS took to its official Facebook page to announce the achievement.

The rankings for each subject were based on four factors:

  • Academic reputation
  • Citations per paper
  • Employer reputation
  • H-index citations

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017 cover a total of 46 disciplines – highlighting the world’s top-performing universities in each academic area. The rankings are compiled annually to help prospective students identify the leading universities in a particular subject. Research citations, along with the results of major global surveys of employers and academics are used to rank universities.

Last year, six Pakistani institutes of higher education were ranked among the world’s top 800 universities by QS rankings.
