An opportunity like no other for Lebanese students seeking world top educations, the QS World Grad School and MBA Tour is back in Lebanon to open these doors wide for the Lebanese students.
On the 24th of February, at InterContinental Phoenicia, students will have the unique opportunity to meet and network with top-grade educational institutions, such as London Business School, Warwick Business School, INSEAD, Montpellier University, University College Dublin, IE Business School, Bocconi University, IESE Business School, and many more.
By attending, Lebanese students will also get access to the QS Scholarships fund worth $7 Million.
With tens of thousands of universities across the world – 26,368 institutions indexed by the Ranking Web of World Universities alone – we understand that selecting a university at which to study has been challenging with so many options available to students.
If you are a student, it is important you identify which of these institutions will do most to foster your academic development, offer a compelling co-curricular catalog, and nurture your future career.
It is indeed one of the most important decisions that you’ll ever have to make, and QS will be here on February 24th to help you and guide you. Better information leads to better choices and better choices will help you towards better outcomes.
Based on that belief, the QS global team of higher education analysts produce every year the world-renowned QS World University Rankings portfolio.
It consists of an annual series of proudly-independent, rigorously-compiled, intentionally comparative tables, offering students essential information about the performance of their potential future study destination.
But how can these rankings help you make better decisions? Here are four ways that they can help:
#1 They can help you create a shortlist
The QS World University Rankings, hosted at Top Universities, allows you to filter by region, country, and rank – so that you can create a highly personal list of potential ‘best-fit’ institutions at the beginning of your journey, while also filtering out institutions that don’t align with your preferences.
#2 They can help you work out which universities are upwardly-mobile
The higher education sector is never still, with universities across the world working ever-harder to provide career-centric, academically rigorous educational experiences.
By exploring which universities are rising up the rankings, you can discover new – but increasingly-outstanding – institutions that may not have been on your radar before.
#3 They can help you identify the best universities for your subject
Very few universities offer outstanding programs in every subject – and some – like the University of Sussex, which outranks Harvard University for Development Studies – have departments that perform better than their reputation might suggest.
The QS World University Rankings by Subject – whose latest edition will launch March 3rd – can help you filter and shortlist based on your specific academic ambitions;
#4 They can help you choose a university that’ll support your career ambitions
QS thinks that a top university needs to nurture employability as part of its mission, and the QS Graduate Employability Rankings allow students to compare universities based solely on their efforts to foster highly-employable graduates.
As part of their mission to empower motivated students to achieve their potential, QS is offering ambitious Lebanese students the opportunity to meet face-to-face this month admissions’ directors of some of these world-leading, upwardly-mobile universities.
We highly encourage our Lebanese students to grab this great opportunity and explore MBA and master’s programs, get the best advice from admissions directors, and network with alumni at the event to learn from their experience.
The QS World Grad School Tour in Beirut will be held at the InterContinental Phoenicia from 2:30 pm to 8 pm. And remember that, by attending, you will also get access to the QS Scholarships fund worth $7 Million.
