Ranking of Latin American Universities 2014

There is a new ranking of Latin American universities. It is based on a weighted combination of scven indicators, and a different weighting or different indicators would presumably yield a different ordering of the universities. It focuses on 300 universities chosen originally to be the best in the region (thus some of those not ranked my be better than some of those ranked low among the 300)

Five of the top 10 are in Brazil, two in Chile, two in Mexico and one in Colombia.

Long ago I worked and taught in three of those universities:
  • 29 The Catholic University of Valparaiso (Chile)
  • 39 Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria (Chile)
  • 51 Universidad del Valle (Colombia)
