During his participation in the QS World Ranking Conference 2023 for the Best Arab Universities held in the UAE, Salama said five new Arab universities entered the QS ranking in its latest version, while others maintained their positions.

Salameh, according to an AARU statement issued on Sunday, said Arab universities have achieved many developments and improvements in recent years. However, he added, many still suffer from a lack of human and financial resources, overcrowding and poor quality.

In the statement, he stressed AARU realized the importance of Arab universities’ rankings as a “major” goal in its strategic plan for 2019–2030.

To achieve its future plans, he noted AARU is putting the final touches on the Arab university ranking system, which takes into account international classifications and is scheduled to be announced publicly at the beginning of next year.

This future system, he noted, will activate new standards that measure for the first time extent of Arab universities’ excellence in innovation, creativity and leadership fields in a two- year period.
