What is Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking ?
Eduniversal is based in Paris, France and is an international ranking agency which specializes in higher education.
Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking is conducted every year in which more than 12,000 postgraduate programmes are evaluated on the basis of three main criteria namely : reputation of the programme, salary of first employment after graduation and student satisfaction.
The rankings are more broad-based and not formula-driven. They highlight the academic excellence of the programmes offered.
In the year 2015, 5.32 percent more graduates were given the opportunity to evaluate their Masters or MBA programmes and 5.1 million students from all over the world used the Eduniversal website to choose their graduating programme.
The information to the Best Masters Survey is provided by the institutions themselves and finally they are verified by the ranking department of Eduniversal.
Final ranking is thus calculated through a global survey of 5,000 international recruiters, 800,000 students and over 10,000 representatives from 1,000 academic institutions in 154 countries.
The Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking is considered as an important source of information which is further used by students and companies to determine the quality of an institution, its programmes and its pass-outs.
