The Center for World University Rankings relies on objective criteria for its rankings, so it does not consider surveys and data submissions from universities. The criteria focus on education, employability, quality of faculty and research. Among the factors considered: the academic and professional success of alumni, research output of faculty and the number of faculty members who have received top academic distinctions.
The Center for World University Rankings is a consulting organization providing policy advice, strategic insights and consulting services to governments and universities to improve educational and research outcomes.
