2018 University Rankings based on Centers of Development/Excellence

28,960 views

Want to know the best colleges and universities in the country offering your academic program? This can be best answered by considering institutions offering your choice of degree course with centers of excellence (COE) and centers of development (COD) awarded by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

We compiled CHED’s list of centers of excellence (COEs) and centers of development (CODs) for Academic Year 2017-2018 released this year, came up with an unofficial tally and ranked schools according to the combined number of their COEs and CODs. In this unofficial ranking, we assigned a point for each university’s COE, and 0.75 for a COD. The choice of points is basically on the difference between a center of excellence and a center of development. Center of Excellence (COE) lies in having a graduate program for at least five years.

COEs and CODs are higher education institutions with the highest degree or level of standards in the areas of instruction, research and extension. The data used in this article, as of May 8, 2018, is sourced from Office of Programs and Standards Development and compiled by OPRKM-Knowledge Management Division.
