Dhaka University among bottom 300 in QS World University rankings
The University of Dhaka (DU) has been listed in the bottom 300 universities among 936 universities in the latest QS World University ranking of 2016-17. DU is the sole representative from Bangladesh to have made it to the latest QS World University Rankings, but in the bottom 300.

The university has been placed in 701+ position worldwide and 109th in Asian University rankings.

He said: “The criterion of the rankings varies from place to place, that’s why DU has a lower position”. Professor Siddique claimed that the actual condition of Dhaka University is far better than other universities that had higher positions in the QS ranking. “Though we have enriched our academic atmosphere better day by day but we don’t get better position in the ranking because of the flaws in the ranking system”, Professor Siddique added. He hopes that Dhaka University will take its position in the top 100 very soon. India has 14 universities and Pakistan has 6 universities that have made the list. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) tops the list for the fifth consecutive year, while the University of Cambridge has dropped out of the top three for the first time in over a decade. The top three is rounded up by Stanford University taking 2nd place, and Harvard University settling in 3rd position.
