The British consulting firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) recently released the results of the 22nd edition of its Latin American ranking, with 428 participating institutions.

«We are very pleased with this result, as the progress achieved this year in the QS Latin America Ranking is a sign of our constant commitment to excellence. It results from committed and constant work closely related to our mission and principles. These have been difficult years of the pandemic, which has meant rethinking many issues, but without losing the quality and reputation of our university project,» said UNAB President Julio Castro.

The QS Latin America methodology and indicators consider academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty-student ratio, citations per published article, number of professors with PhDs, publications per academic, web impact, and international research network.

The top five places in this measurement are occupied by the Universidad Catolica (1st), the University of Sao Paulo(2nd), the Universidad de Chile (3rd), the Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey(4th), and the Universidad Estatal de Campinas (5th).
