UMT becomes top-ranked university in Pakistani private sector

The University of Management and Technology, Pakistan’s leading not-for-profit private sector university has proven that focus, commitment and faith in your abilities can lead to great rewards, both for individuals and institutions.

With humble beginnings in the year 1990, UMT has today become the number one private sector university in Pakistan, as validated by leading and highly respected university ranking bodies of the world.

In its latest feat, UMT has been named among the top 150 young universities of the world by Times Higher Education (THE). THE is a globally renowned ranking body that is considered an authority on rating universities around the world in accordance with their carefully crafted ranking parameters.

THE has been publishing university rankings since 2004 and their analysis is widely considered the final word in the world of global higher education. Over the years, THE has added several new rankings to complement its annual World University Rankings. These include subject wise rankings, Impact Rankings, Reputation Rankings and regional rankings.

Young University Rankings
One of the key rankings THE added to its list in 2019 was the Young University Rankings. The Young rankings includes the world’s best universities that are 50 years old or younger. The universities are ranked on the basis of 13 performance indicators, including teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook, faculty citations etc.

For the 2023 edition, THE included 605 universities in the ranking, with 48 of them being from Pakistan. Maintaining its stature as the top higher educational institute in Pakistan, UMT remained the highest ranked university in Pakistan, outclassing its competitors in both the public and private sector. It was placed in the 101-150 band, meaning UMT is now one of the top 150 young universities in the world. The top Pakistani university has now been placed in the same league as Liverpool John Moores University, IIT Indore, IIT Ropar, and Middlesex University. This is indeed validation of a long-held claim by UMT that its academic and research strength is comparable to top higher education institutions of the world. UMT scored an impressive 99.9 — a perfect score —for research citations, a clear indication of the effectiveness and impact of the university’s research output.

THE Asia Rankings
Earlier in June 2023, THE released its 11th edition of the Asia Rankings, with 669 universities included for the 2023 list. The rankings included 33 nations, and Pakistan was represented by 29 universities. Again, UMT stood out from the crowd by becoming the number 1 ranked private sector university in Pakistan in the Asian rankings. UMT was placed at the 116th position, far outclassing other private sector institutions like LUMS (201-250 band) and University of Lahore (251-300 band).

THE World University Rankings
Times Higher Education rolled out its World University Rankings 2023 in October last year. The 2023 edition was a momentous occasion for UMT as it rose to the position of the number 1 private sector university in Pakistan for the first time. UMT has always been focused on cutting-edge research and its efforts finally bore fruit when THE awarded a perfect score of 99.9 to UMT for its citations.

THE citations indicator basically assessed a university’s research influence and the university’s role in spreading new knowledge and ideas. THE says the number is “calculated by evaluating the average number of times a university’s published work is cited by scholars globally” and carries a 30% weightage in the overall score.
UMT’s score of 99.9 indicates the true strength of the impact its research output has on the real world.

Commenting on the continued successes, UMT/ILM Trust Board of Governors Member Ibrahim Hasan Murad said the university had stayed committed to its founding principle of creating value for its students and the academic world.

“Thought leadership has been at the very core of UMT’s academic and societal mission. We have all put knowledge creation and new thinking before all else, be it our curriculum or our industry linkages. We have a true service mindset, and this spirit of serving the academia, the youth and the country is what strengthens our resolve each day,” Murad added.

“God willing, we are now aiming to become the top-ranked university in all of Asia, not just Pakistan.”

  1. I met someone on an online dating app. At some point, the scammer instructed me to send crypto assets to what I believed was a legitimate banking app based in Singapore. But the scammer provided fake instructions so that my money went into the crypto asset wallet belonging to the scammer instead. I deposited Ethereum (ETH) into the scammer’s account on three separate occasions, eventually losing thousands of dollars. I hired HACKWEST AT WRITEME DOT COM who specializes in crypto assets recovery and other hacking services and was able to locate the scammer’s wallet through blockchain forensic analysis and was able to retrieve my entire funds they stole from me. It’s about 673,000 USD in total. Although Hack West didn’t do this for free, it was worth it. I will always tell everyone about my experience with West and his team.

  2. The internet used to be a safe haven to gather new knowledge in the comfort of your space until these scammers sprouted out of the blue like worms and made it unsafe. I am a country music lover, and Kenny Rogers is my idol. I can remember when a notification from Instagram popped on my screen, Guess who, my idol. I was awed and I can remember myself writing about all his impact in my life. I was so sure I was talking to my idol on Instagram. He did say he wanted to introduce me to this quick money-making scheme because he noticed I have been a loyal fan on his official IG page. My idol can never go wrong in my eyes and didn’t even do any research. I hurriedly joined the scheme. I never knew it was a scammer posing as a celebrity till I had invested $540.000.00. It got worse when I couldn’t access my account or withdraw from my investment, I knew there was a problem after all these happenings. I need to get help from any means to ensure I am not a victim of these parasites. I was glad to be able to be introduced to the best CRYPTOCURRENCY RECOVER EXPERT, Cyber-Genie Genie Hack Pro. I talked to their representative and they assured me of recovering my stolen investment. And as they promised, they didn’t disappoint as they were very confident in their expertise. My stolen investment was successfully recovered and they were the ones who confirmed to me that I was catfished.
