role of reputation in international partnerships

The survey for the W100 Annual Research project on the role of reputation in international partnerships is due to close shortly; now is your last chance to get involved.

We have had a strong response from universities around the globe, including many non-World 100 members. But getting a comprehensive view of the issues around reputation and global partnerships from Members is also crucial, so if you have not yet responded, click here to take The Role of Reputation in International Partnerships survey.

The survey findings will be complemented by a series of case studies showcasing best practice at universities that have successfully leveraged the reputational value of international partnerships.

If you would like to suggest a possible case study, please contact W100 Research Manager, Lisa Bould, at

The final report from the research will be published in November 2019.  Members of the W100 Network can access the report from the news and resources page.  The research project aims to answer some key questions around the role of reputation in international partnerships. Who is responsible within institutions for the development and promotion of partnerships? What are the keys to successful working relationships amongst internal stakeholders? How effectively are universities using international partnerships to enhance their institutional brand and global profile and how prepared are they for any negative reputational changes their partners might encounter?
