The online questionnaire aimed at Directors of International and Communications & Marketing in leading global universities which will feed into the World 100 Annual Research project on the role of reputation in international partnerships has been launched.

All W100 members are encouraged to fill in the questionnaire and ensure that relevant colleagues in their institution, particularly those responsible for international partnerships do so. The questionnaire can be accessed here.

The W100 Research project is focused on exploring the role that reputation plays in the formation of partnerships between global universities and other international bodies; and how such links can be used to grow profile for institutions around the world.

In addition to the results of the survey of key staff at leading global universities, the research project aims to develop a checklist/toolkit for evaluating the reputational impact of potential and existing partnerships. There will also be a series of case studies and best practice examples to complement the research findings.
