LUMS Business School Makes a Place in the QS World Subject Rankings 2020

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

The Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) at LUMS continues to gain greater prominence globally. The latest QS World University Rankings 2020 places it as the top business school in Pakistan and in the top 250 business schools of the world for Business and Management Studies.  

The School’s MBA is also ranked among the top 25 MBA programmes in Asia according to the QS MBA Rankings Asia 2020 and among the top 250 in the world.

SDSB strives for excellence; the School’s rankings are a testament to this. QS Rankings are acknowledged globally as thorough and are compiled annually to help prospective students identify leading universities in a particular subject. Research citations, along with the results of major global surveys of employers and academics are taken into account. Each of the subject rankings is compiled using four sources. The first two of these are global surveys of academics and employers, which are used to assess an institution’s international reputation in each subject. The second two indicators assess research impact, based on research citations per paper and h-index in the relevant subject. These four components are combined to produce the results for each of the subject rankings, with weightings adapted for each discipline.

Commenting on this major accomplishment, Dr. Alnoor Bhimani, Honorary Dean, SDSB said, “Our primary goal is to develop ideas and people to shape business and society. The world recognises our performance in this respect. What matters to us is that we offer outstanding business education, produce research that impacts lives and that SDSB serves the needs of enterprises that prize high calibre graduates. ”
