It is worth noting that 4th QS-MAPLE will unravel QS’s newest regional rankings system devised for the Arab world—QS University Rankings: Arab World. Participants at the conference will have the opportunity to attend the rankings session and determine the weight of criteria that will form the rankings, together with experts from the QS Intelligence Unit.
