About The World 100 Reputation Network

The World 100 Reputation Network is the only professional network for reputation managers in the world’s best universities, exploring reputation, communications, strategy, crisis, marketing and international partnerships. It is exclusive to senior staff in institutions ranked in the top 200 of any of the global rankings published by QS, THE, ARWU and US News and World Report, or in the top 100 of the THE and QS rankings recognising the best young universities across the world and now the THE Impact Rankings.

Now comprising members from all over the world, we believe that our international diversity is one of the reasons members find the Network so valuable.

Although global in outlook the Network offers members the opportunity to become part of a ‘local’ community, existing to share good practice, transfer knowledge and overcome common challenges.

The Network engages in one annual research project that pushes forward the boundaries of knowledge around reputation and helps those in charge of their university’s image to understand it and better amplify it.

Professional development and institutional amplification form part of the value of member gatherings.

The World 100 Network gives its members privileged access and exposure at a variety of educational and cultural places.

“It's the only one [network] that gives me a peer group that I know are equally, if not more, experienced than I am”

Tania Rhodes-Taylor, Formerly University of Sydney

The World 100 Committee

Universities with a clear focus on reputation perform strongly in global university rankings. The World 100 Reputation Network aims to provide our members with everything they need to improve their place in the rankings. Even when members see a fall in their overall ranking position, we consistently see evidence of the network’s benefits with a high or improved reputation score (notably in the THE & QS tables).
