For the special series we did on Education City and higher education in Qatar, we analyzed the various American and international universities with branch campuses across Qatar -- fifteen in total.
The data is measured across six parameters and assigned a score between 1-30 with 30 being the highest. The resulting multivariate data is represented in the radar charts shown above.
The researchers evaluated overall news mentions (how many times the university is mentioned in the news), public interest level (how many people are searching for information on the university), video views (the total amount of views on the university YouTube channel), website visitors (the number of people who visited the university website), web references (the number of places that link to the university's website), and the total online footprint (the aggregate amount of information and materials pertaining to the university available online). This data together provides a key indication of a university's overall brand visibility.
