The Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings by subject evaluates nearly 1400 institutions based on academic survey results, employer review survey results, citations per research paper and the H-index, an author-level metric that aims at capturing the productivity and impact of one’s publication. The 2020 edition of the ranking features 48 academic disciplines, grouped into five broad subject areas. Its comprehensive and synthetic sources make it one of the most authoritative and widely-read academic rankings.

This ranking highlights WHU’s excellence across an incredibly wide range of disciplines as well as the effectiveness of the construction of Double First-Class (World-Class Universities and World-Class Disciplines) in promoting China’s higher education. With all the results it has already gained, WHU will make unremitting efforts to further shape the sound climate that embraces unbridled academic exploration and innovation.
