About 2024 QS World Rankings:
The 2024 QS Rankings have implemented its largest-ever methodological enhancement, introducing three new metrics; Sustainability, Employment Outcomes and International Research Network. The results draw on the analysis of 17.5m academic papers and the expert opinions of over 240,000 academic faculty and employers.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology celebrates twelve years at the top, the University of Cambridge retains 2nd place while the University of Oxford (3rd) climbs one position.
This 20th edition of QS Rankings comes at a time when priorities in higher education are evolving. QS sits in the privileged position of being a nexus point in the higher education sector – connected to millions of students, hundreds of thousands of academics and employers, and thousands of institutions worldwide.
QS Rankings have seen the focus of these different stakeholder’s shift in response to wider trends in education and society, and to reflect this collective intelligence in its QS performance insights, have incorporated three new indicators into the QS World University Ranking.
Sustainability has become a touchpoint for global institutions as they come to realize their impact on the world, and students have come to expect institutions to tackle issues related to social and climate justice.
The QS International Student Survey 2022 found that 80 percent of students think universities could do more for the environment. This is reflective of a wider trend of younger students who advocate strongly for social and environmental activism.
The rankings have recognized this call to action by adding a five percent weight Sustainability lens to our flagship world ranking, the first of the major rankings to do so to reflect the crucial role universities play in charting the course and driving change towards a more sustainable future.
The QS Rankings have also continued to strengthen its insight on employability and remain the only major ranking to enshrine the importance of employability in its methodology. To do this, the rankings have boosted the weight of Employer Reputation to 15 percent and added Employment Outcomes at five percent.
