About Quacquarelli Symonds
Quacquarelli Symonds is a UK based company that specialises in the producing guides and rankings of higher education establishments.
It was founded in 1990, and has grown to have over 270 employees. Its main location is in North London, with smaller marketing offices in a number of countries, including the US.
The company generates its main form of revenue through the running of conferences, with particular reference to the MBA sector.
Despite the popularity of its rankings the company is relatively unknown outside of it's industry, something that it will seek to address in the coming years.
In 2016 the company faced increased competition from consumer organisation Which? with the launch of its University rankings and advice service.
It is expected that Quacquarelli Symonds will be forced to focus on the higher end of the market, primarily MBA courses, which is where the bulk of its profit is believed to be generated.
