Unlike the QS's world rankings, the EECA is a regional list, which reflects the quality offered by the universities in emerging countries, working in a similar funding environment, in a more objective manner, by excluding both American and British universities. The ranking results are based on 9 weighted indicators: academic and employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, papers per faculty, citations per papers, staff with PhD, web impact, international faculty and international students.
