Among the Top 10 universities, all scored 60+ out of the maximum attainable 100, whereas in 2017, a score of 56.47 was sufficient for a Top 10 spot

Comparing this year’s ranking to 2017, the most obvious change is North South University’s ascension to number one. The university had a lead in the Perceptual Score against Brac in 2017. This year, the margin has widened. While Brac has maintained its lead in the Factual Score, the wider lead in the Perceptual Score has enabled NSU to pull through.

NSU’s and Brac’s final score however, are very close—77.11 to 75.63. In 2017, Brac had a wider margin with 78.95 to 71.13. 

East West University, one of the oldest and largest private universities, jumped up to third position, from last year’s seven. This is owing to a jump in its factual score.

One point of note is that after NSU, Brac and East West, come IUB, Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, AIUB, Daffodil International University, United International University, Ulab and finally the University of Asia Pacific—in this order—and that they are the same 10 universities from the Top 10 list in 2017.

Among the Top 10 universities, all scored 60+ out of the maximum attainable 100, whereas in 2017, a score of 56.47 was sufficient for a Top 10 spot. This is perhaps an indicator that the top institutions have cemented their position.

The remaining 10 universities in top 20 scored between 50 and 59 (rounded). In the top 10 category, Daffodil International University and UIU went up by three and one place respectively, and the others went down by one to three places. In the next 10 category (11-20), International Islamic University Chittagong made its way to 11th position despite being included in the ranking for the first time.

Among the others, Green University of Bangladesh made the biggest jump, going eight places up; followed by Southeast University and BUBT, moving up by seven and six notches respectively, mainly owing to a big increase in their respective factual scores.

Among the others, Stamford University Bangladesh and Manarat International University experienced positive change.

The research was conducted once again by Org-Quest Research Limited in association with Dhaka Tribune and Bangla Tribune.
