Sejong University has obtained a high rank in the ranking by major at the QS World University Rankings 2023. This was announced by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), which is a British global university analysis institute. 


The QS World University Rankings is one of the three greatest global university evaluation institutes in addition to the Rankings and the Academic Ranking of World Universities.



Sejong University was ranked in the top range in three fields, which include Business Administration/Social Science, Technology/Engineering, and Natural Science, among five integrated rankings. There are 10 majors that are ranked in the global levels, which include the Hospitality and Tourism Management Major, and nine of them moved up in the rankings or entered the top range.
