UNAIR NEWS – The real steps and efforts of Universitas Airlangga to be among Top 500 world-class universities have brought results. This time, two subjects within UNAIR are ranked in QS WUR by Subject 2020.
In this regard, the Head of UNAIR Planning Development Board (BPP) Prof. Badri Munir Sukoco Ph.D., stated that this achievement was the result of a long process carried out by all UNAIR academics. The two ranked programs in QS WUR by Subject 2020 are Medicine and Business and Management Studies.
“UNAIR’s Business and Management Studies is in # 451-500 world and Medicine is in position # 551-600,” said Prof. Badri.
