Blue Institutions on the Top 100 QS University Rankings 2021

At Explorance, we take a collaborative approach when working with Higher Education Institutions and consider them partners. These partnerships have been fundamental to the evolution of our products and solutions especially the Blue Student Journey Analytics framework.

So, when QS World University Rankings released their 2021 list, we were beyond elated to see many of our partnering institutions recognized. The 2021 list details the top 1000 universities from across the globe and is “the world’s most popular source of comparative data about university performance.”

A huge congratulations to all our partnering Higher Education Institutions that have made the 2021 list!
