The only ranking system that evaluates sustainability and employability is the QS World University Rankings, which was released in its 21st edition by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds). A record 1,500 universities from 106 higher education systems are included in the QS World University Rankings 2025.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is ranked #1 in the QS rankings for the thirteenth year in a row. However, QS pointed out that Imperial College’s “world-leading research performance, outstanding employability scores, and exceptional sustainability commitment” were the reasons behind its rise from sixth to second place in the most recent edition. The Universities of Oxford and Harvard, which are still placed third and fourth, respectively, are the next two universities to round up the top five, after the University of Cambridge.

Turkey, Pakistan, and Indonesia are a few of the nations with the biggest improvements in the rankings.

These 10 Pakistani universities made it to ranks in recently released 2025 QS World University rankings list.

These universities must keep working to raise their rankings and become competitive with the world’s best universities going forward.
