Lusófona University's position in the TOP 5 is the result of A scores (Excellent) regarding gender equality; strong employability of bachelor and master graduates working in the region; high number of students doing internships in the region; scientific publications and publications developed in partnership with other regional and international institutions; interdisciplinary publications; art-related projects; and high number of spin-offs and companies resulting from student-led projects.

The results obtained confirm the success of the work axes defined in the Strategic Plan and in the University's mission, in order to foster the development of renowned private university education, committed to research and innovation projects as well as activities of relevance to the community. This result follows a number of Lusófona University's other recent excellent results in different assessment processes, namely by A3ES and by FCT, and confirms yet again the place of prominence that Lusófona University now occupies in the national higher education landscape.
