Private University Rankings 2017: Questions you might have

Why this ranking?

Help universities identify where they stand and take necessary steps to upgrade their ratings, which would help them sustain in the long run. This will also contribute to the improvement of the quality of higher education, which benefit the country as a whole.

How is this ranking going to be useful to students?

They will be able to decide which universities will be good for them. The financial issue is also involved here. A student may be able to consider the quality of the universities that fall within their affordability. Perhaps a student is unable to afford the top university on this ranking. But they can check which of the ranked universities they can afford to go to. They will then be able to take a decision.

Which universities were considered for this survey?

Only private universities founded and operating in Bangladesh were considered for the survey. Universities blacklisted by the government, new universities (those who have started academic activities after 2012) and those who do not have enough subjects were excluded from the ranking.

What is this ranking based on?

The ranking is based on the number of teachers at a university, research, campus, academic activities, library condition and the perceptions of academics and employers about the graduates.

Why data from 2014 is used?

For factual data, the selected universities were formally approached to provide necessary information in a prescribed form. However, as only a few responded positively, the data published by the UGC for the year 2014 (latest data at the time of the study) was used.

Why is the ratio of Factual to Perceptual score 40:60?

It could have been 50:50, but the latest data obtained from UGC is from 2014. The factual data is also less reliable. Therefore it was assigned less value.
