Global recognition

COMING in hot at the 217th place on the QS Asia Ranking 2018, the Management and Science University (MSU) is now part of the top 1.8% universities throughout Asia.

A natural step up in the right direction, MSU had previously opened 2017 with a QS Rating of Five Stars for Teaching, Facilities, Graduate Employability, Social Responsibility and Inclusiveness.

The QS World Universities Rankings, involving over 70,000 academics and 44,000 employers, are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments alike for both comprehensive-ness and balance.

The annual ranking of world universities by the London-based higher education analyst and career consultancy QS, or Quacquarelli Symonds, are based on carefully calibrated performance indicators including teaching, graduate employability, internationalisation and research.

The QS Asia Ranking 2018 used the same World Universities Ranking performance indicators but with recalibrated weightings that reflect Asian priorities.

Furthermore, MSU attained the double distinctions of Excellence in Quality International Education and Outstanding Contribution to International Education from the UK accreditation body, the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges & Universities.

Other accomplishments include the university being named the Most Entrepreneurial Private University 2016 by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, and accorded Best Brand in Education 2016 by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation.

Ultimately, the 2018 ranking of MSU not only jives with the university's aspiration for global prominence on the rankings rungs, but it also celebrates MSU's burgeoning commitment towards excellence in higher education.
