Nunzio Quacquarelli

Founder and President of QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), UK

QS was founded in 1990 as a student project while Nunzio was completing his MBA at the Wharton School. As founder and CEO of QS, he leads a team of over 350 people from 30 different countries in offices around the world.

The QS mission is to help young people to fulfill their potential through educational achievement, international mobility and career development. As part of Nunzio’s commitment to the QS mission, the company has 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, Nunzio has had the pleasure of leading the company to become the world's primary information, events and online solutions company in the higher education sector. He has overseen the 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®.
