Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) has been ranked 78th
in the prestigious Times Higher Education (THE) Emerging Economies Rankings 2020, making it the top private institution among its Malaysian counterparts.
The result also shows that UTP is ranked second after Universiti Malaya.
The THE Emerging Economies University Rankings 2020 includes only institutions in countries classified by the London Stock Exchange’s FTSE Group as “advanced emerging”, “secondary emerging” or “frontier”.
The rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the THE World University Rankings to judge institutions on their teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. But they are recalibrated to reflect the development priorities of universities in emerging economies.
Overall, 533 universities from 47 countries or regions are included in the ranking.
