Taylor’s still best private university in Malaysia; leaps 47 spots in global rankings


The recently released QS World University Rankings 2022 series revealed that Taylor’s University has leaped 47 spots to rank 332 globally and remains among the top 1.1% most influential institutions, globally. On top of that, the university continues its reign as the leading private university in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. 

Earlier this year, the university retained its Top 20 world ranking in the Hospitality and Leisure Management subject in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021; making it the only university in Malaysia and Southeast Asia to make the Top 20 ranking. The same rankings also indicated that the Taylor’s Business School is the top private business school in Malaysia. 

Taylor’s University Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Michael Driscoll, believes that the university’s strategy of curriculum innovation, and nimble response to the evolving education landscape has ensured its consistent success in this area.

“This latest achievement has come at a time where industries and universities have successfully innovated and adapted to the mode of delivering hybrid learning for their students, anywhere around the world,” he said. “A year on into the COVID-19 pandemic, we have prioritised mobilising and supporting learning continuity by introducing radical reforms to our approach to teaching and learning.”

Taylor’s is one of the few Asian universities to be awarded the QS 5 Stars rating for Online Learning as the institution’s direction in its teaching and learning approach now puts e-learning at centrestage. The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the university’s latest approach in its new Taylor’s Curriculum Framework, developed to encourage student independent learning.
