Rozee.PK today announced that it will assist the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan on a ranking of Pakistani universities.
The final list of ranked universities will be used to gauge the status of higher education in Pakistan and to recommend improvements for higher educational institutions, said a statement issued by Rozee.
One of the criteria in ranking that the HEC considers is post-commencement employability. With over a quarter of Pakistan’s online population visiting the site annually, and over 2.2 million registered professionals and over 40,000 employers posting available jobs, ROZEE.PK is sharing the relevant information, specifically employment within the various sectors with HEC free of cost.
This data will be used by HEC to gain a comprehensive picture of the state of higher education and to rank the Pakistani universities accordingly.
Monis Rahman, CEO of Rozee.PK said:
“As Pakistan’s most powerful talent matching platform, ROZEE.PK has access to data spanning millions of records. We strongly believe in the importance of higher education in helping secure better employment opportunities and are happy to help a national institution like HEC on a project of such national significance,”
Dr S. Sohail H. Naqvi, executive director at the Higher Education Commission, adds,
“We at the HEC aim to bring Pakistan’s universities at par with international standards. The HEC is striving to build capacity of HEIs to contribute effectively in national development as well as to get reflection internationally for competitive Higher Education standards.
The recent advancements towards practicing a national system of quantitative ranking of HEIs based on QS world ranking is one of such measures.
We are grateful to ROZEE.PK for facilitating HEC in gathering this critical data of graduate employability seems essential for the purpose”.
