Mapúa University has achieved another landmark feat, debuting in the 601+ bracket of the Times Higher Education (THE) Asia University Rankings 2023. This feat has made the university one of only four Philippine higher education institutions (HEI) that were included in the prestigious list.  

Mapúa’s research capability and output was the most significant pillar that contributed to its stellar performance in the THE Asia University Rankings, where it secured second among the four local universities. This strong showing is a result of Mapua’s efforts to inspire and push both faculty and students to undertake and publish relevant research for the past five years.  

It can be further attributed to the collective effort of the institution’s students, faculty, support staff, administrators, and its leadership team, to work toward the school’s mission statement of becoming one of the best universities in the world. 

Dr. Josephine German, Director of the newly established International Rankings Management Office (IRMO) of the university, expressed her optimism regarding Mapúa’s achievement in the THE Asia University Rankings and the impact of this recognition on the university’s reputation. 

“Our post in this year’s Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings will give Mapúa greater leverage and cement its status as one of the best universities in the Philippines and in the world. On a global scale, this recognition will enhance our reputation, entice more students and employees to join our community, and enable our graduates and alumni to become even more professionally competitive. I am also optimistic that we can sustain our rank and climb higher in the next few years”, said Dr. German. 

The evaluation process for THE Asia University Rankings 2023 incorporates five performance indicators: teaching, research, citations, international outlook, and industry income. Mapúa University’s consistent focus on these areas has contributed significantly to its improved standing and recognition in the global higher education landscape. 

The university’s IRMO was established to ensure its consistent inclusion in global education rankings and sustain the highest quality of education. The IRMO will strengthen the university’s teaching, research, and international outlook to guarantee that Mapúa’s high-quality instruction results in highly employable and globally competitive graduates.
