QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) is the world’s leading information specialist in the higher education sector. QS’s mission is to enable motivated people to fulfil their potential by fostering educational achievement, international mobility and career development. Through our exclusive events, publications, research and interactive web tools, we link undergraduate, graduate, MBA and executive communities around the world with recruiters and education providers.

Our communities include TopUniversities.com, QS TopMBA.com, QS GlobalWorkplace.com and QS unisolution, providing the complete online solution for prospective undergraduate, graduate and MBA students worldwide. TopUniversities.com is the home of the QS World University Rankings, the world's most popular global higher education tables, according to data from Alexa.com, SimilarWeb.com, and Meltwater. 

In 2016, TopUniversities.com received over 140 million pageviews from 36 million users around the world. The QS audience continues to grow month-by-month, and we continue to seek to provide the most relevant, useful, accurate comparative data about university performance to the world's student body. 

In 2014, QS teamed up with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania to create the Reimagine Education conference and awards, which has grown to become a prestigious educational awards event and elite education forum since its inception. The initiative is supported by leading universities and companies alike: keynotes have been delivered by educational experts at Microsoft and Google, while award winners include Harvard and the London School of Economics.

QS publications include the QS Top Grad School Guide and the QS Top MBA Careers Guide, which feature articles, interviews and information on news and trends in the postgraduate and MBA markets. The Top Universities Guide is the definitive annual guide to the world’s leading universities as ranked by the QS World University Rankings®.

QS's values and mission are embodied by its highly international, highly diverse team, which contains internationally recognized experts in the higher and business education sectors.

Founded in 1990, QS operates globally from offices in London, Paris, New York, Alicante, Stuttgart, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing, Sydney, Washington DC, Boston, and Johannesburg.
