MANILA, Philippines —  There is much work that needs to be done following the Philippines’ lackluster performance in the Times Higher Education’s (THE) 2024 Asia University Rankings, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. said on Wednesday.

While Marcos recognized that more higher education institutions are entering various international rankings, Philippine HEIs failed to crack the top 100 esteemed university rankings.


“We must acknowledge that in the recent Times Higher Education’s 2024 Asia University Rankings, unfortunately, no Philippine university has reached Top 100, with the country’s top schools either dropping or maintaining their rankings,” Marcos said in his speech at the National Higher Education Day Summit in Pasay City.


“This just goes to show that much work is still to be done. We must pursue a comprehensive and all-encompassing strategy that will turn this trend around. The state of our education today shapes the future of the nation,” added the President.

Marcos likened education to a tool to win the future.

“We should arm our young men and women with the right skills to not only survive, but to thrive in a rapidly changing world that does not wait for anyone,” said Marcos.

Ateneo de Manila University ranked 401-500 in this year’s THE Asia University rankings, followed by the De La Salle University and the University of the Philippines at 501-600.
