For the ninth year in a row Harvard has been ranked as the top global university by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR). This year, the global top-10 is as follows (with last year’s rankings in parentheses):

1. Harvard University (1)
2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2)
3. Stanford University (3)
4. University of Cambridge (4)
5. University of Oxford (5)
6. Columbia University (6)
7. Princeton University (7)
8. University of Pennsylvania (9)
9. University of Chicago (10)
10. Yale University (12)


CWUR grades universities on seven factors without relying on surveys and university data submissions: quality of teaching, alumni employment, quality of faculty, research output, high-quality publications, influence, and citations.
 

The US has eight representatives in the top-10, which has been the case since the rankings started in 2012, and is the most represented country in the top 2000 with 357 universities, including three from Puerto Rico. All Ivy League institutions feature in the top 60 this year. In China, the number of universities in the top 2000 is 267 - with 258 from mainland China, 7 from Hong Kong, and 2 from Macau. While Peking and Tsinghua declined slightly, the rest of the C9 League saw improvements this year. Japan, led by the University of Tokyo in 14th place, has 126 top-2000 institutions.
 

The University of Cambridge leaps for the first time to top spot globally in quality of education, and ranks as the top public university in the world for the 6th year in a row. The number of UK institutions in the top 2000 this year is 95. France, led by PSL University at number 21, has 82 representatives in the top 2000.

46 institutions from Russia, led by Moscow State University at number 193, feature in the top 2000. Elsewhere, the University of Melbourne ranks first in Oceania, the University of São Paulo tops Latin America, and the University of Cape Town ranks highest in Africa.

Since 2012, CWUR has been publishing the only academic ranking of global universities that assesses the quality of education, alumni employment, research output, and citations without relying on surveys and university data submissions. The ranking started out as a project in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia with the aim of rating the top 100 world universities. It was quickly reported worldwide by universities and the media and many requests were received to expand it. In 2019, the ranking expanded to list the top 2000 out of twenty thousand universities worldwide, making it the largest academic ranking of global universities.
 

Since 2016, the Center for World University Rankings is headquartered in the United Arab Emirates.
