In the just-released seventh edition of the QS World University Rankings by Subject by Quacquarelli Symonds, three Malaysian university programmes rank in the top 30. They are University of Malaya's Electrical Engineering (at 23rd) and Development Studies (at 26th); and Taylor's University's Hospitality & Leisure Management (at 29th).[...]Congrats to Taylor's University as a private university in Malaysia that has managed to rank 29th for its Hospitality & Leisure Management course. Amazing achievement! No more excuses that QS world university ranking is only for public universities and not applicable for private universities in Malaysia, especially during education fairs when parents enquire regarding the university ranking.

“USM has also done us proud, with four subjects in the top 50, notably with Hospitality & Leisure Management ranked 32nd and Mineral & Mining ranked 35th.
“Speaking of firsts, we have a private university ranked in the world’s top 50, namely Taylor’s University, at 29th place, for Hospitality & Leisure Management; while IIUM also appears at 46th, for Theology, Divinity and Religious Studies.
