An-Najah Ranks 1st in Palestine, 11th in Arab World, among top 100 in THE Emerging Economies Rankings 2022
An-Najah National University has been ranked 1st in Palestine, 11th in Arab World, and among top 100 in the recent Times Higher Education Emerging Economies Ranking 2022.
The rankings include institutions in countries classified by the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE Group as “advanced emerging”, “secondary emerging” or “frontier”. “Emerging economies are still maturing, as are their institutions. The Emerging Economies University Rankings recognizes this, and we recalibrate performance indicators in our World University Rankings to assess them fairly,” reads the statement from The Times.
More than 698 universities representing 50 territories are featured in the ranking this year. Institutions are ranked using the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings to evaluate institutions on their teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. However, these carry a different weighting to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies.
As Times Higher Education explains, the rankings are composed using 13 rigorous performance indicators examining each university’s strengths against its core missions: teaching (the learning environment); research (volume, income and reputation); citations (research influence); international outlook (staff, students and research); and industry income (knowledge transfer).
Prof. Abdel Nasser Zeid, President of the University commented on the occasion: " An-Najah University has been consistently recognized for its international excellence - not just in the Emerging Economies university rankings, but also in the global Times Higher Education rankings, and particularly in the THE University Impact Rankings. The university has also featured among the world’s best universities in the Webometrics Ranking Web of Universities; and the QS World University Ranking among others".
