The factual scores were estimated from data collection from the University Grants Commission report published in 2014 such as number of students, faculty, PhD holders and amount of research spending. The Perceptual scores were collected from academics and employers who scored the universities on factors such as the academic environment, infrastructure and quality of the faculty members and on the job performance and ability to take initiative and communication skills of the graduates. The Survey was conducted by Org-Quest Research Limited and it is the first of its kind in Bangladesh. The university ranking project was carried out under the supervision of an advisory committee consisting of education experts from various fields.
