Abstract

A University’s rank is useful in the current era where arc universities are progressively enlarging their umbrella of strength and performance to remain competitive in the spheres of academic excellence. Essentially, world ranking by the Times Higher Education is a valuable means by which challenged emerging universities can possibly heighten their efforts for making recognizable impacts in the form of quality products and services in the particular academic niche they operate. In view of the merits associated with the ranking of universities, this research unraveled key underlying responsibilities for administrators of emerging universities such as the University of Energy and Natural Resources in Ghana. As indicated by this study, building a world-class university calls for an integrated and vested efforts by all forms of bureaucracy in universities in order to achievable this objective. This study maintained that, attaining this objective of being a world-class university could be quite challenging due to the operational reformations most emerging universities must undergo, however, it was posited that the benefits of being “tagged” as a world-class university is enormous, and therefore recommended the need for administrators to champion the ideal world-class university standard by promoting interventions that are in line with this agenda.
