The ranking of best universities worldwide: value and criteria
QS World University Rankings® by Subject is the most accredited international universities ranking. It provides a comparative analysis of the performance of about 1.594 institutions, analysing 54 academic disciplines divided into 5 subject areas.
For the Art & Design Subject, the criteria used in this rigorous and independent comparative analysis are Academic Reputation and Employer Reputation. The first and most influential metric takes into account the global academic community's appreciation of universities through the QS Academic Survey. This is currently the most extensive global survey of academic staff evaluations. The second criterion, Employer Reputation, assesses universities' ability to train talented and competent graduates ready to begin their professional careers. In this case, the analysis considers the opinions of HR managers from around the world.
