This lens assesses the program type and content. Attention has been given in the ranking to not only how the programmes are being taught but what is being taught. Subsequently, within the International Trade Rankings there is a significant emphasis on international trade programme content and whether thesecourses are core or elective. Programme content has been categorised and evaluated using five pillars of International Cross Border Trade: Trade, Trade Policy, Trade Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Trade Finance and Accounting, and Leadership and Soft Skills.
Source of Data
Institutions were invited to submit data via the International Trade Survey. QS verified this data through desk-based research, with further validation by the Hinrich Foundation team. Where data was not provided via surveys, we have attempted to source this from the publicly available information on the program’s website. This is in-line with QS’s general policies on data collection and validation.
