Which are the top 10 universities in the world?

The list, released by the Center for World University Rankings, is based on eight measures, including the proportion of alumni who have won major international awards or held CEO positions at the world’s top companies

 

Harvard comes out on top of the latest global university ranking, followed by Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The list, released by the Center for World University Rankings, is based on eight measures, including the proportion of alumni who have won major international awards or held CEO positions at the world’s top companies, and the number of research papers appearing in reputable journals.

Eight of the top 10 positions are held by US institutions, with the UK’s Cambridge and Oxford holding the remaining two spots.

The only change from the top of the 2014 list is the inclusion of Cornell at number 10, at the expense of Yale.

The CWUR says its ranking is the only one that doesn’t rely on surveys and the universities’ own data submissions.
