Ajman-UAE: July 02, 2020 – Ajman University (AU), for the 3rd year in a row, has made another one of QS Intelligence Unit's elite list of rankings.
Every summer, the QS Intelligence Unit launches the “Top 50 Under 50”, which showcases the world's best universities under 50 years of age.
Once again, Ajman University is on the “Next 100” portion of that list, thereby putting it among the “Top 150 under 50”.
Only 8 universities in the UAE and a total of 17 universities in the Arab World earned a spot on the prestigious list of QS World Rankings “Top 50 Under 50”, published on June 24, 2020.
“I am proud that AU is among the top 150 universities under 50 for the third consecutive year, according to the 2021 QS World Rankings, said Karim Seghir, Ph.D., AU Chancellor. “This is another amazing outcome of the diligent efforts and exemplary dedication of many stakeholders over the past 32 years.”
The complete 2021 list of “150 under 50” is available at topuniversities.com. First published in 2012, QS Rankings of the best universities under 50 allows some of the world's top young universities to shine. Since 2015, it has tripled its range to include the Next 100 Under 50.
