The rankings cover 54 disciplines grouped into five broad subject areas and are compiled annually to help prospective students identify the leading universities in a particular subject. The universities are ranked using research citations and the results of major global surveys of employers and academics. This year’s methodology includes three new subjects: data science, history of art, and marketing. 

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023 has six of the 10 most improved programmes hosted by institutions in the Arab Region, including Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Qatar and Jordan.
