15 Saudi universities in World Academic Ranking
Saudi arabia–Saudi institutions now make up 15 of the Academic Ranking of World Universities, popularly known as the Shanghai Ranking, up from six in the previous recent listing.
Saudi universities competed for advanced centers in 11 scientific subjects where they were recognized. This is one of the top 50 international universities where Saudi universities have made significant advancements, including King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, which holds the 15th international center in energy science and engineering, and King Abdulaziz University, which holds the 24th world center in nanoscience and technology.
According to Shanghai Ranking, their study of academic fields worldwide in 2022 will be “the most comprehensive and unbiased ranking of international institutions by subjects on the planet.”
The league table for this year included university rankings for 54 subjects, including the social sciences, engineering, life sciences, and engineering. More than 1,800 universities from 5,000 colleges in 96 countries and regions are currently included in the rankings.
With 26 Saudi institutions on the list in 2022 as opposed to 16 universities in 2018, Saudi Arabia took first place in the Arab world and was ranked 30th internationally in the nature rating for the quality of scientific research. There are now 16 Saudi universities listed in the QS World University Ranking, up from nine in 2019.
In the Times Higher Education ranking for 2022, there are now 15 Saudi institutions, up from six in 2019, and there are now 12 Saudi universities in the Times International Ranking of Emerging Universities for 2022, up from three in 2019.
The World University Rankings provide a comprehensive ranking of the top institutions in the world with an emphasis on the research objective. It is the only international university league table that rates research-intensive institutions according to all of their primary goals, including teaching (the learning environment), research (volume, income, and reputation), citations (research influence), industry income (knowledge transfer), and international outlook (staff, students and research).
The rise in the number of Saudi universities in the Shanghai Ranking, according to Raed Al-Hamdani, general supervisor at Positive Interaction for Training and Consulting, is a clear indication that the state’s support for education at all levels is progressing favorably and qualitatively, in line with Vision 2030.
Al-Hamdani advised academic and professional institutions, as well as universities, to improve their performance by preparing their staff to keep up with the most recent advances on a worldwide scale.
He stressed the significance of strong governance and regulation, the creation of key performance indicators, and the subsequent monitoring and evaluation of these as essential components required for the growth and continuity of organizations, regardless of size.
The lack of strategy clarity and the organization’s overall direction, according to Sultan Alsharif, chairman of Outstanding Performance Management Co., are the main issues.
According to Alsharif, a leadership crisis that combines the strategic dimension and the ability to oversee the execution is one of the problems that businesses trying to improve their performance must deal with. For firms looking to grow and establish their existence, the absence of an organizational culture concept is a significant barrier.
According to AlSharif, one of the biggest problems facing organizations is a lack of change management, highlighting the significance of the human element in those organizations.
