Abstract

Universities wait with trepidation each year when university rankings are published. These rankings are often viewed as indicating 'excellence‟, providing prestige as well as attracting potential students and possible research or other funding. Several organizations produce composite indices which are used to rank universities worldwide. Two of the best known indices are the Times Higher Education (THE) and the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS)world university rankings [1,2]. They were originally part of one ranking system, but separated in 2010 with each producing its lists based on their own criteria, resulting indifferent universities taking the top spots.
