What should UK universities do to help improve the situation above the support provided by groups like CARA (Council for Assisting Refugee Academics)? What is their wider responsibility, if anything? Should it all just be left to UNICEF?

A new university ranking system, U-Multirank, was officially launched by the European Union (EU) in Dublin on Wednesday, bringing a new and broader approach to the assessment of universities throughout the world.
Some 500 universities worldwide are expected to sign up to U-Multirank, and the first results will be published in early 2014.
U-Multirank will rate universities in five separate areas: reputation for research, quality of teaching and learning, international orientation, success in knowledge transfer – such as partnerships with businesses, and start-ups – and contribution to regional growth.
The aim, said Androulla Vassiliou, the European commissioner for education, is to give students and institutions a clear picture of their performance across a range of important areas.
Until now university rankings have placed “disproportionate” weight on research excellence, she said.
Brussels has proposed a funding allocation of €2 million (US$2.7 million) from the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme in 2013-14, with the possibility of a further two years of seed funding in 2015-16

"The passing of the crown", Financial Times, December 3, 2012
The king is dead long live the king. The 2012 FT European business schools ranking, now in its ninth year, marks the end of an era. The European crown, which has belonged to HEC Paris of France for the past six years, has been seized by IE Business School of Spain. IE now tops the group of 80 European schools.
The ranking is based on the indexed scores achieved by schools this year in five rankings – those for MBAs, executive MBAs, masters in management and open and custom executive education (see Key and methodology). Indexed scores reflect a school’s standing among its European peers.
Both quality and quantity are required to reach the top. IE Business School is now included in all five rankings, having participated in the master in management ranking for the first time in 2012, reaching sixth place.
The top spot in the European schools ranking reflects IE’s strong performances across the range, notably third in the MBA ranking.
“IE Business School is outstanding for the international environment, the personal development and coaching one receives,” says Larissa Dornbach, a 2008 MBA graduate from Germany and now a senior manager...

Bad rules breed corruption. Cutting them costs nothing
SINCE 2003 the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the World Bank have been tracking the business-friendliness of government rules around the world. Things are looking up. Nearly all regions are catching up with the best practices seen in the richest countries.
This matters for many reasons. One is that onerous rules breed corruption. For as many countries as it can, the IFC plots its own measures of the regulatory burden against perceived levels of corruption, as ranked by Transparency International, a pressure group. As the chart shows, the more rules impede business, the more incentive businessfolk have to bribe them away. Lighter rules mean less baksheesh. They also mean a larger formal economy and a wider tax base.

It's been two years since Fortune last published this list, which we produce in association with Aon Hewitt Consulting. Aon Hewitt, in partnership with RBL Group, started by surveying HR executives at 478 companies worldwide about their leadership development programs. Aon Hewitt then interviewed executives at 182 global finalists, drilling into their leadership strategy, succession planning, techniques for identifying high-potential junior employees, and much more. A panel of distinguished judges, including authors, academics, and journalists, then gathered to select the regional and global winners.
Bloomberg Businessweek's 2011 Executive MBA ranking is based on three separate surveys of EMBA graduates (2011, 2009, and 2007) and a poll of EMBA program directors. The graduate poll rank shown is for 2011 only.
...Emerging, a French consulting firm, surveyed employers on which schools they tended to rely on, and on what qualities made job candidates most employable.
Carried out in collaboration with Trendence, a German consulting firm, the survey included hundreds of employers from 10 countries.
Emerging boiled down the results to 150 universities that it called the Emerging/Trendence Global Employability Ranking — a list that includes the traditional top elite schools in North America as well as relative newcomers in Asia and Europe.
The study is meant to give “universities, recruiters and students the most valuable of tools: a road-tested blueprint of where it’s best to study in order to get a job,” Emerging said as it released its findings...
The most popular business school professors are good teachers, plain and simple. They’re not rock stars, CEOs or celebrity researchers. Their names may not look familiar. But they’ve earned a place in the hearts and minds of their students by bringing to life accounting, finance and management, learning their names and helping them find jobs. Their students come first and it shows.
To determine which professors at the Top 30 U.S. full-time MBA programs were most popular, Bloomberg Businessweek used surveys sent to 2010 graduates asking them to identify their two favorites. Professors were ranked in order of absolute popularity. In all, the responses of 3,732 students were used to calculate this ranking; only schools that had more than 60 student responses were counted. At least one in every five survey respondents from each of the schools listed wrote down these names chosen for our top ten list as their favorite professor—pretty amazing considering they had hundreds of faculty members to choose from. Read on after the jump for the list.

Finance professor at New York University Stern School of Business
A seven-time recipient of Stern's "Professor of the Year" award, Damodaran practices open-source teaching, posting almost all his class materials on his blog. He's also one of the few business school professors to have inspired a tribute video on Youtube; the video spoofs pop star Justin Bieber's Never Say Never movie trailer. In the 89-second clip, the handiwork of a student, Damodaran proclaims "I want to be the Lady Gaga of finance." He has more than 4,000 followers on Twitter.
Ahuja ran a stoneware distribution business and designed educational board games while an undergraduate in his native India before enrolling at Ross in 1991 for his Ph.D., his MA and his MBA. He never left. The corporate strategy professor stresses the importance of integrity and generosity in his lectures - values he says were handed down from his mother and grandmother. Ahuja also oversees the school's chapter of Net Impact, a national organization dedicated to using the power of business to improve society and the environment.
Nolen has been on the faculty at his alma mater since 1980. In that time he has built up legions of fans. Former students describe him as a world-class storyteller (complete with a Texas accent) who brings his own experience as a small-business consultant to bear in lectures. Nolen's skills extend beyond the classroom: He "places more students than career services," says one former student, Q Beck.

The Europe-driven global benchmarking system U-Multirank, which allows universities to create personalised rankings using an array of indicators, was unveiled in Brussels last week. It is "a new user-driven, multi-dimensional and multi-level ranking tool in higher education and research," said its creators.
Because of these characteristics, U-Multirank differs substantially from existing rankings and meets the needs of various higher education stakeholders, said its designers Frans van Vught and Frank Ziegele in a presentation on Thursday.
