“Ranking of higher education institutions is now one of the most debated issues in higher education, emerging as a major force in the dialogue about higher education’s role and impact on students and society.

In addition, international ranking systems have emerged to compare institutions across countries.” [Text from the Institute for Higher Education Policy – read more here]
