ULAB is the only Bangladeshi university to place within the top 100 universities this year, Prof Hwy-Chang said.

WURI was created to evaluate innovative programs of universities, and to measure the performance of universities in terms of adding real value to society and providing opportunities for the future. 

The ranking is composed of the Global Top 100 and the Top 50 ranking in each of the following categories: Industrial applications; Entrepreneurial spirit; Social responsibility, Ethics and integrity; Student mobility and openness for exchange and collaboration; and Crisis management. 

ULAB ranked 27th in Crisis management, 28th in the Entrepreneurial spirit, and 39th in Ethics and integrity, according to the statement from the university. 

ULAB acting vice-chancellor Prof Shamsad Mortuza lauded the resilience and team work of the ULAB family, which had made the global endorsement possible.

“The ranking will galvanize our commitment to change the ecology of higher education in Bangladesh,” he added.

ULAB WURI Project Leader Professor Jude William Genilo, also head of media studies and journalism, said: “ULAB has always seen itself as a partner in community and nation building. It has an environment that supports creativity and innovation.  In the 2021 rankings, WURI recognized three of ULAB's programs as these are in line with its vision of active and practical learning, producing graduates that industry and society really needs.”

The ranking is a manifestation of ULAB's promise to utilize its innovative online teaching and learning techniques in responding effectively to the Covid-19 pandemic, said the press release.
