Times Higher Education World University Ranking

The UPF Department of Economics and Business has been ranked #40 globally for its Business and Economics degrees by the Times Higher Education World University Ranking, a ranking that lists the top 1,000 universities in the world by study areas.

The Department's position has risen since last year, when it was ranked at #48. Several of its academic metrics have notably improved, particularly the indicators for citations (81.2 points this year, +6.2 since last year), international outlook (66.7 points, +4.8), and research (67.3 points, +8).

The citations metric measures research influence, and looks at a university's role in spreading new knowledge and ideas. International outlook is the ability of a university to attract undergraduates, postgraduates, and faculty from around the planet. The research indicator measures paper volume, grant income, and reputation, and gives a sense of a university's ability to publish in quality peer-reviewed journals.

The Department's rank at #40 makes the UPF the only Spanish university in the global top 50 for Business and Economics degrees. The UPF was ranked overall in the 151-175 bracket for studies in Social Sciences.
