Adharul added that there are five pillars that influence THE ranking, namely teaching, research, citation, industry income, and international outlook.

Industrial Income is the amount of funds received by UB related to research and down-streaming that has been done.

International Outlook is an international perspective on UB, how they view the quality of UB.

The quality can be seen from the lecturers, international collaboration or cooperation, publications, and also the interest of international students to study at UB.

Therefore, the more networks that are made with international partners, the more they will increase their appreciation so that they will be interested in coming to UB.

“For example, in the research, we hope to be better by optimizing UB great resources,” he said.

Meanwhile, six universities in Indonesia are above UB, namely, UI, ITB, UGM, IPB, and ITS. (OKY/Humas UB/ Trans. Iir).
