London, June 27, 2024 — Global higher education experts QS Quacquarelli Symonds have announced the World University Rankings 2024. This ranking is unique in that it emphasizes Employability and Sustainability and includes 1500 institutions across 104 locations.

The rankings follow an analysis of 17.5 million academic papers and the opinions of over 240,000 academic faculty and employers. Massachusetts Institute of Technology holds the top spot for the twelfth year. At the same time, the University of Cambridge retains second place, and the University of Oxford climbs to third place.

This year, QS introduced three new metrics to its ranking system: Sustainability, Employment Outcomes, and International Research Network.

According to Ben Sowter, Senior Vice President at QS, this update was made after consulting with higher education leaders worldwide to better align with the priorities of socially conscious Gen Z and Alpha students.

• A Tour of the Chandigarh, India, Region — Academic Reputation Counts!

Both Chandigarh University, Mohali (770-780) and Shoolini University, Solan (770-780) are ranked substantially higher than Panjab University, Chandigarh (1001-1200). Even higher is Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan (741-750).

The inferior placement of PU Chandigarh compared to PU Lahore, Shoolini, and Chandigarh University is due to its poor performance in two crucial ranking categories - Academic and Employer Reputation - where the other three have surpassed it.

The following observation made in 2015 still holds good.
