The annual survey continued to grow strongly in 2016, with a participation rate of more than 70%.

2016 Eduniversal Ranking of the Best Business School in Thailand


A unique ranking: Methodology

The 1000 business schools in the Official Eduniversal Selection are selected by the International Scientific Committee, composed of nine independent academic experts* recognized in their geographical zone, after careful evaluation. The objective is to establish a global mapping that considers the international influence and reputation of each selected institution. Thus, the EES (Eduniversal Evaluation System) compiles and analyzes hundreds of data from global, national and regional higher education systems, taking into account the accreditations, the results of other rankings and the distinctions obtained in the country of the schools analyzed.

For the ranking of the 1000 Best Business Schools, the EES designates among the thousands of institutions listed in 154 countries, those that will integrate the ranking. The number of schools and universities allocated per country is determined according to a quota method using quantitative and qualitative criteria (macroeconomic, historical and cultural data).

Eduniversal then classifies institutions according to their international reputation at the national and international level as well as by geographical zone. After their selection, the institutions are divided into five leagues of excellence or "Palmes of Excellence". A "Palme of Excellence" level (1 to 5) is assigned for each of the schools selected according to the set of internationalization criteria defined by the International Scientific Committee. Their classification in their league is then determined according to the evaluation made during the Deans' Vote Survey.

The Dean’s Vote is an exclusive feature of the EES, in which the Deans and Directors of the 1,000 best selected global institutions pass their recommendations on each of the 1,000 institutions selected in the 154 countries. The number of recommendations collected then determines the ranking for each of them within each "Palme of Excellence" or league (

Focus on innovation at the 2016 Convention

Innovation featured strongly in the debates and workshops at the 9th Eduniversal World Convention in Perth: Innovation and Change in International Education: Marketing, Partnering and Recruitment; Innovations in Delivery and Working with Private Providers; Innovation and Best Practices in International Education; Innovating to Meet Tomorrow's Learning and Teaching Challenges; Designing Innovative New MBA Programs to Address Global Sustainability Challenges.

These debates and workshops were organized and facilitated by recognized experts in the field of higher education. The Curtin University campus, where this ninth edition took place, became a four-day meeting place for the sharing of experiences, discoveries and the creation of social links, demonstrating that a campus itself may be a source of innovation.The Eduniversal World Convention, with its strong international and intercultural dimension, is an opportunity for the Deans, research directors and teachers present to exchange best practices in all areas of the academic sector (pedagogy, programs, research, governance, etc.) and enables networking and the building of academic partnerships.The convention captures the dynamic spirit that defines the Eduniversal agency.
