The GEURS ranking is now in its 11th edition. It is composed of a global survey of employers to ask not only who they regard as the best institutions to employ graduates from, but the skills and dimensions that they value when looking for new hires. This makes the survey more detailed than the similarly structured QS Employability Ranking.

QS 2022 World University Ranking
The QS World University Rankings aims to guide students and their families in choosing higher education institutions.

THE defines a young university as one established less than 50 years previously.
The Nature index’s source is based only on the number of articles published in Nature titles. The index does not contain citations, and only covers the publisher’s own journals. It is therefore neither a measure of impact, nor of productivity, but of a university’s ability to produce articles in one highly reputable source.
This ranking measures, first the result of their academic reputation survey, the second, the results of their employer reputation survey. The other two are the number of citations per paper (citation rate) and a variant of the Hirsch index over five years, which purportedly measures both productivity and the fourth?, highly cited knowledge production, being a measure of h papers with h citations. This means that highly productive research groups are represented better than in mean citation rate.
As the sample has expanded over the past five years – from 200 in 2016 to 533 in 2020. This means that while the universities have improved in all indicators over this period, it cannot be said with certainty that this relates to absolute gains.
This article observes the results and mobility of the São Paulo State HE institutions performance in the THE World University Ranking 2020.
