Four key objective pillars were analyzed for the rankings—education, employability, faculty and research. The center used seven objective and outcome-based indicators grouped into four areas to rank the worlds universities:

Education: Based on the academic success of a universitys alumni, measured relative to the university’s size (25%)

Employability: Based on the professional success of a universitys alumni, measured relative to the university’s size (25%)

Faculty: Measured by the number of faculty members who have received top academic distinctions (10%)

Research:

  • Research output: measured by the total number of research articles (10%)
  • High-quality publications: measured by the number of research articles appearing in top-tier journals (10%)
  • Influence: measured by the number of research articles appearing in highly-influential journals (10%)
  • Citations: measured by the number of highly-cited research articles (10%)

Surveys and university data submissions did not factor in the rankings. The center says that equal emphasis was put on student and faculty indicators, and that 62-million outcome-based data points were used. For more on the methodology, .
