Taylor’s University jumped 7 places to 14th place in the QS World University Rankings by Subject for Hospitality & Leisure Management
Taylor’s University retains its position as the second-ranked university in Asia for the Hospitality and Leisure Management subject in the 2019 QS World University Rankings by Subject. Taylor’s University moved a further seven places up the rank compared to last year, further establishing its standing as one of the best universities in Asia, after Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Taylor’s University Vice Chancellor & President, Professor Michael Driscoll said that this achievement was especially significant with the change in the employer reputation component for this subject.
“This year, there is an increase in the weightage of how the institution is viewed by employers. Our strong performance is indicative of how our students are viewed by industry players and proves to us that our approach is well-received by the industry.
“Taylor’s University scored highly for employer and academic reputation for the hospitality and leisure management subject. The excellent work put in by the strong academic team at the School, significant investment into research and the breadth of the School’s collaboration with over 500 top hospitality partners has contributed towards our strong performance.
“We will continue to enhance our strengths; be it the innovative approach to teaching or our unparalleled relationship with the industry. This takes us another step closer to being a formidable force in the discipline globally.
“I’m also pleased that we broke into Business and Management Studies subject, which is a first for Taylor’s University. We will look into how we can mirror the strong positive performance we have had in the Hospitality and Leisure Management subject, where we scored highly for both academic and employer reputation, in order to improve on our standing for the Business and Management Studies subject,” he said.
