The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2014 employ the world’s largest invitation-only academic opinion survey to provide the definitive list of the top 100 most powerful global university brands.

A spin-off of the annual Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the reputation league table is based on nothing more than subjective judgement – but it is the considered expert judgement of senior, published academics – the people best placed to know the most about excellence in our universities.

    Harvard University is persistent in this list on top 1st position. But MA based MIT is climbing up. Notice the state of US i.e. MA where world’s top 2 Universities are located… I have not checked the list of top 500 Universities. But hopefully there would be no such word of “Pakistan”. Because as Harvard University is persistent so we also love to be persistent…. Vice Chancellor of Quaid E Azam University Dr. Masoom Yaseenzaee speak a “deeng” after every 6 months that his University is among world top 100……

    Pakistan will never be on any list unless there is true urge for education in our society. Most people go to school not for becoming scientists and researchers but to make both ends meet. For that they will take shortest route possible. I have seen many people leaving their primary field and opting for CSS exams knowing very well the lucrative opportunities it has to offer. In short there is no compulsion for acquiring the knowledge. There is no dearth of talented people in Pakistan but there are very few who can recognize and appreciate the talent. Most of the money in Pakistan is with illiterate class and they have very little appetite for talent.

    Rankings like this always seem biased towards US universities…it has become more of a “rankings business” rather than a genuine assessment of academic excellence. A 25 point difference between Cambridge and Harvard seems quite dubious to me…
