Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - STAFF REPORTER

LA­HORE—The La­hore Uni­ver­sity of Man­age­ment Sciences (LUMS) has jumped 50 places since last year to reach No.1 po­si­tion in Pak­istan and 111 po­si­tion in Asia ac­cord­ing to QS World Uni­ver­sity Rank­ings 2016.

This year, LUMS has shown a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment from the rank­ing in pre­vi­ous years; it was at 161 po­si­tion in 2015, 181 in 2014, be­tween 191 – 200 in 2013 and 251 – 300 in 2012. Over 800 in­sti­tu­tions were in the QS world rank­ings this year, based on nine key per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors.

Con­grat­u­lat­ing the LUMS com­mu­nity on this ac­com­plish­ment, the LUMS Rec­tor, Ab­dul Razak-Da­wood said, “This is in­deed a great achieve­ment. Fi­nally we are be­ing recog­nised for all the ef­forts we have put in over the years. I wish to con­grat­u­late the LUMS VC, the Deans and all mem­bers of the fac­ulty and staff for this achieve­ment. Con­sis­tency and sus­tained ef­fort over the years does pay.”

It is, of course, also a recog­ni­tion of the pre­em­i­nent grad­u­ates of LUMS who have achieved great suc­cess all over the world in their var­ied en­deav­ours. Our am­bi­tions will, how­ever, not al­low us to rest on our lau­rels and I look for­ward to your con­tin­ued sup­port as we set our tar­gets on be­ing counted among the premier in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing in Asia and the world.”
