Abstract
Many Universities are striving to attain the status of a World Class University. Some Parameters used in ranking universities include: Quality of education and teaching, Research, citation, international outlook, Alumni, Awards and Industry Outlook, operations and processes of a potential world class university should be directed optimally towards these parameters. This paper proposes a simple method of maximizing the operations processes of such universities in order to attain world class status. Operations Research techniques are employed to model the situation and solutions obtained using simplex method with the aid of computer software. It is observed that a lot of attention have to be paid to research publications, Alumni employment and international collaboration and linkages. Also the manpower should be motivated in order to become a world class university.
