UPF has climbed eight positions and is now in 45th place overall and 15th in Europe in the University of Tilburg Economics Ranking, which classifies the 100 best research centres and institutions in the field of economics worldwide, published since 2009.

The Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (Barcelona GSE), an institution of which UPF is a member, comes 38th in the overall ranking, and 11th in Europe, with a total of 118 publications. Apart from UPF and the Barcelona GSE, the only university in the Spanish State to appear in the ranking is Carlos III University, in 85th place.

The first three positions are held by the American universities of Chicago, Harvard and Stanford. All of the top fifteen are from the US except for the London School of Economics and Political Science and Oxford, which come 4th and 11th, respectively.

107 articles published by UPF in thirty of the best Economics journals

Taking into account the scientific output of the researchers linked to the Department of Economics and Business at the University and their groups, units and research centres, UPF obtains a score of 107, corresponding to the 107 articles published between 2015 and 2019.

These articles have been published in thirty of the 79 publications selected for the ranking, included in the Web of Knowledge. Notable are the 14 articles published in the American Economic Review, the 9 featuring in the Journal of the European Economic Association, and the 7 in the Journal of Political Economy.
