These rankings are completely meaningless. If anyone wants to discuss, check the measures they use. But they do give good press for better ranking universities, which creates this whole business of ranking universities...there are several. Besides, ranking is a hopeless, something more from the US and UK perspective that we do not need.

I know people with AUST and LIU degrees that are getting paid 3 times what MBA gradutes from AUB are.

100 %
Impossible
There are many universities before BAU: NDU , ANTONINE UNIVERSITY , USEK ,KNAM .....
 
I don't mean that BAU isn't good but it seems the rankings are based on nothing.
&, in a serious survey for rankings , every faculty in the university should be ranked.
you can't say that one university is better than all others in every faculty!!
For example :
Medicine: AUB, USJ,Balamand...
Computer & Telecom engineering : Antonine university(UPA),AUB,USJ,LAU,...
Civil engineering: Roumieh,...
Architecture:Alba,...
....
