Abstract/Summary The first multi-indicator ranking of world universities, “Academic Ranking of World Universities” (ARWU), was published by the Graduate School of Education (formerly Institute of Higher Education) of Shanghai Jiao Tong University in June 2003. Although the initial purpose of ARWU was to determine the global standing of top Chinese universities, it has been attracting worldwide attention from governments, universities, media, and the public. Since then, about 10 global university rankings have been published. The impact of global university rankings has also been increasing. In this presentation, the history, methodologies of ARWU will be introduced and its features and limitations will be discussed. The positions of Asia Pacific universities and their trends will be analysed according to ARWU. The academic performance of Asia Pacific universities in various indicators will be investigated. Recommendations will be provided on how to use global university rankings and how to improve the performance of Asia Pacific universities.
