Taylor’s ranks Top 20 in Hospitality and Top 50 in Marketing globally

TAYLOR’S University has once again demonstrated its commitment to academic excellence by achieving a significant milestone in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2024.

This year, the university has achieved an impressive feat, with 17 subjects ranked globally, including four subjects in the world’s Top 100.

Continuing its six-year dominance in the World’s Top 20 for the Hospitality and Leisure Management subject, Taylor’s celebrates another remarkable achievement as its Marketing subject breaks into the World’s Top 50.

“These achievements highlight Taylor’s innovative curriculum and strong industry recognition, enabling valuable collaborations with key industry stakeholders and garnering global acclaim for the university,” said Taylor’s University president and vice-chancellor Prof Barry Winn.

Leading the charge in hospitality and leisure management in South-East Asia is Taylor’s School of Hospitality, Tourism and Events (SHTE), an award-winning school known for its high-quality teaching.

The school’s success can be attributed to its innovative education structure, which enables students to engage in real-world learning and benefit from expert insights.

As part of their education, Bachelor of International Hospitality Management students undertook a transformative 14-week journey, participating in a dynamic Digital Marketing project at the Imperial Lexis Kuala Lumpur.

This hands-on experience immersed students in real-world hospitality challenges and innovations, guided by Lexis Hotel Group marketing and innovation vice president Samantha Lee.

“The immersion in real-world hotel operations offered invaluable professional insights.

“Personally mentored by Samantha Lee, we gained insights impossible to acquire in a traditional classroom setting,” said Vo Trieu Quan, from Vietnam, as he reflected on the project.

“My time at Lexis was a highlight of my Taylor’s experience.

“The mentorship provided deep insights into digital marketing, and visiting a new, yet-to-open hotel was a unique opportunity.

“It’s the hands-on learning that truly made a difference.”

The Hospitality Project Management module, a cornerstone of the final year curriculum, provides students with the platform to apply knowledge to real-world scenarios.

Through this immersive experience, students hone their entrepreneurial and innovative skills, preparing them for the dynamic hospitality industry.

“Taylor’s takes pride in the strategic partnerships that we build with key industry players, which directly benefit our students’ learning experience and employability,” said Taylor’s School of Hospitality, Tourism and Events head Assoc Prof Dr Joaquim Dias Soeiro.

“Our consistent presence among the world’s top 20 schools in hospitality, events and tourism education affords our students unparalleled opportunities.

“This positioning not only ensures a world-class education but also facilitates meaningful collaborations with industry giants, providing our students with insights and a head start in their careers.”

In yet another triumph, Taylor’s Business School’s recent achievement of a Top 50 ranking in its Marketing subject further cements its status as a leading private business university in South-East Asia.

Other ranked subjects in the school are Accounting and Finance, Business and Management, and Economics and Econometrics.

This milestone adds to the school’s recent accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).

AACSB has 1,013 accredited institutions in over 60 countries and territories and 194 institutions with AACSB accreditation for accounting programmes.

Taylor’s Business School distinguishes itself as one of only five private universities in Malaysia to attain this accreditation, a prestigious recognition that is only held by 6% of business schools worldwide.

This accreditation grants the university and its students access to a vast network of more than 1,900 member organisations globally and a network of businesses seeking top talent.

Other fields recording significant achievements include Accounting and Finance, Architecture and Built Environment, Arts and Humanities Broad Subject, Arts and Design, Communication and Media Studies, Sociology, Computer Science and Information Systems, Data Science and AI, Economics and Econometrics, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Engineering and Technology Broad Subject, Medicine, Pharmacy and Pharmacology and Social Sciences and Management Broad Subject.
