The University of Queensland has ranked third in the world in Hospitality and Tourism Management in global subject rankings released today.

It was one of three UQ subjects in the top 10 in the annual ShanghaiRanking, making UQ the only Australian university to achieve that trifecta.

UQ Business School’s Associate Professor David Solnet said this was the second year the Hospitality and Tourism team had been recognised with a global number three ranking.

“With Queensland in the midst of a significant tourism boom, and with no end in sight, UQ’s active recruitment activities will bring us new outstanding global talent to further enhance our research and student experience,” Associate Professor Solnet said.

In addition to the Hospitality and Tourism Management ranking, all other subjects from UQ’s Faculty of Business, Economics and Law were ranked in the top 100 globally. Business Administration, Management, Finance, Economics and Law maintained or improved on their rankings from 2017. 

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ ranked in 48 of the 54 subject areas, and was in the top 50 in the world for 16 subjects and the top 100 for 35 subjects.

“These results are a testament to the depth of teaching and research impact across diverse faculties and schools, and to our ongoing commitment to knowledge leadership for a better world,” Professor Høj said.

The ShanghaiRanking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2018 ranks 4000 universities across 54 subjects, on indicators including research productivity and quality, the extent of international collaborations, and academic recognition.
