To prepare this year’s list, the auditing firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) evaluated 4,438 universities from all over the world and 1,117 were included in the ranking. Four indicators were used to rank each university: the centre’s academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per paper, and the h-index, which measures the researchers’ scientific production based on the productivity and impact of their published works. QS has been publishing its university rankings since 2004 and has become a global reference for comparing performance in academia.
Ana Delgado, the Director of the University of Navarra’s International Office, expressed her satisfaction with the results. “We’re pleased with these very positive results”, she said. “They encourage us to continue to move forward with our teaching project and quality research, our international approach and interdisciplinary work. We’re also proud that the Spanish university system is starting to be ranked among the best in the world.”
