The University of Queensland Business School has placed in the top 100 worldwide across all relevant subject areas in the 2020 QS World University Rankings by Subject, released today. 

Two subject areas – Hospitality and Leisure Management, Accounting and Finance – ranked inside the world’s top 50.

The Business School's subject area rankings are:

  • Business and Management – #51-100

QS assessed 48 subject areas in 2020, with 21 UQ subject areas featuring in the top 50.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said the results cemented the University as a world-leading institute and were an important validation of research efforts.

“UQ’s strong performance across all world rankings reflects a commitment to research, teaching and learning that is core to the University’s values,” Professor Høj said.

“UQ is one of only three universities in the world to be ranked in at least 43 of QS’s 48 academic subjects, demonstrating the strength of our globally-competitive programs.”

The QS World University Rankings by Subject are based on academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact.
