The rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings that determine the world’s leading universities. The main indicators considered to rank the universities include teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation), international outlook (staff, students and research); citations (research influence); industry income (knowledge transfer). These indicators are recalibrated to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies. Eligibility of countries and universities is determined by FTSE classification.
