About Nunzio Quacquarelli

QS was founded in 1990 as a student project while I was completing my MBA at the Wharton School. As founder and CEO of QS, I lead a team of over 350 people from 30 different countries in offices around the world. I am passionate about education and firmly believe in the QS mission to help young people to fulfill their potential through educational achievement, international mobility, and career development. As part of my commitment to the QS mission, we have also established a not-for-profit foundation, QS Education Trust, which provides merit-based scholarships for less privileged future leaders to gain access to higher education. Since its conception in 1990, I have had the pleasure of leading the company to become the world's primary information, events and online solutions company in the higher education sector. I have overseen our research and consulting methodologies that contribute to surveys identifying graduate and MBA employment trends. A major part of this research is also used to publish the QS World University Rankings®.
