The University of Queensland has cemented its position as a global top 100 university performing strongly in the 2015 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

Accounting and finance, business and management studies and law are among the 19 UQ subjects ranked in the world’s top 50.  Economics and econometrics were ranked in the world top 100.

QS evaluated more than 3000 universities and ranked the 854 that met its strict criteria.

UQ Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Peter Høj said UQ’s strong position reflected UQ’s outstanding teaching and staff.

“In line with top 10 placings in other global rankings, UQ has placed 11thin the global rankings” he said.

Changes to the QS World University Rankings by Subject methodology has been a factor in Australian university’s downward trend in this ranking, however UQ continued to perform strongly with UQ ranked in the top 100 for 31 of the 36 subjects QS evaluates.
