Will Global Rankings Boost HE In Emerging Countries?
from University World News
When global university rankings started with the publication of the first Academic Ranking of World Universities, or ARWU, by Shanghai Jiao Tong University back in 2003 and the Times Higher Education Supplement-Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings in 2004, interest was patchy. Latin America, South Asia, the Arab and Muslim worlds and East and Central Europe generally ignored them. Things have changed a lot since then. There are places where global university rankings seem to be a substitute, if not for war, then at least for the World Cup or the Olympics.
