JUST ranks 58th Best University based on the “The Times Higher Education Emerging Economies University Rankings 2019”
JUST has continued to gain momentum in its advancements in the international higher education rankings systems. In one of its newest achievements, JUST has ranked 58th Best University according to the “The Times Higher Education Emerging Economies University Rankings 2019” which only lists institutions in countries classified as emerging economies. Only 442 institutions from 43 countries appeared in the list this year. Among these countries are Brazil, Russia, India, china, South Africa and Turkey.
In this latest achievement, JUST has progressed 15 ranks from 73rd to 58th from last year. JUST has ranked the first nationally in Jordan, where the University of Jordan ranked second nationally (201-250). Regionally in the Arab World, JUST has ranked fourth. The “Emerging Economies University Rankings” system utilizes the same 13 performance indicators that are used in the original HE World University Rankings to judge universities in the emerging economies’ countries, but only ranks them in a separate list.
On this occasion, Prof. Saeb Khreisat, JUST president, said that this achievement is the result of cumulative efforts by the university's staff and associates, and it would not have been possible without the efforts of the members of the teaching and administrative bodies since JUST inception, to improve the university through openness and communication with prestigious universities in international forums, in order to achieve its strategy and reach the status of world class university. Calling on all to exert more effort to achieve the vision of his Majesty King Abdullah II in a leading and distinguished higher education.
