The QS World University Rankings is an annual publication of university rankings which comprises the global overall and subject rankings (which name the world’s top universities for the study of 48 different subjects and five composite faculty areas), alongside our independent regional tables (such as Asia, Latin America, Emerging Europe and Central Asia and the Arab Region). The QS World University Rankings is the most-widely read university rankings in the world.

EECA ranks Eastern and Central European and Central Asian universities. It uses the same methodology as the overall QS World University Ranking, however, adapts the weighting of indicators and includes new indicators such as staff with PhD numbers, university visibility online based on the Webometrics and citations per paper.
