Proving yet again its merit in the world academic standard, Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU) secured another global recognition as eminent Quacquarelli-Symonds (QS) Stars conferred on OLFU Four Stars, and rated the University for its excellence.

Following the “rigorous and independent data collection and analysis” of the QS Intelligence Unit, a compiler of QS World University Rankings, OLFU at its first attempt easily satisfied the performance metrics set out in the QS Stars methodology.

Specifically, OLFU through its holistic academic strategy, professional program and linkages sealed the coveted Five-Star ratings under categories such as Academic Development, Social Responsibility, and Employability.

Moreover, the University also managed to rake in Four Stars in core criteria including Facilities, Teaching, Medicine and Inclusiveness.

This early, OLFU has already been cited by the same recognition body, earning Three Stars for its move towards Internationalization, a direction that the University is seen to be aggressively leading with partnerships inked between leading academic institutions in Asia.

Eyeing for objective scoring, QS Stars as an international education network and analytics provider uses critical categories that “assess universal, core strengths – including some that are overlooked in other university assessments and rankings.”

In May 2023, it can be recalled that the “Home of Topnotchers” also launched into the stringent World University Rankings for Innovation (WURI) after intensive competition this year, earning spots in both Top 50 Fourth Industrial Revolution Awardees for 2023 and the distinguished Global Top Innovative Universities (Top 101-200).

Simply put, this expanding streak of global nods is a testament of OLFU’s stronger commitment to Rise to the Top!

UPDATE: With the official announcement made in July of 2023, the Dean of the College of Hospitality and Institutional Management (CHIM) and the College of Business and Accountancy (CBA), Dr. Ignacio C. Cordova Jr., personally graced the QS Higher Ed Summit: Asia Pacific on November 7 to 9, 2023 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to accept the formal certification of the said accolade on behalf of University President Dr. Caroline Marian S.
