About World 100 Media Monitoring

The reputation of an institution or a brand is vital to its success. Traditionally the responsibility of this reputation falls upon communication and marketing teams, who work hard to portray the desired reputation through activities, messaging, and communications.

Sadly, the hours of planning and work are only one half of the battle. A reputation cannot be formed without the adoption or agreement of your audience. It is their acceptance and belief in what you are saying, and ultimately their relaying of that information that builds an institution’s reputation outside of the university’s four walls.

The World 100 therefore offer a range of media monitoring services that help universities track not only what their audience is seeing, but also what they are saying.

Aurora: Benchmarking international media coverage

Aurora searches for news stories in the first full week of every month.

We search for articles that mention universities who have been ranked in the top 100 of four rankings (ARWUTHEQS, and US News Best Global Universities). We also search for mentions of institutions that are Members of the World 100 Reputation Network.

For quantitative analysis, we simply report the number of records found in the assessment period.
