According to this ranking, the best centres of the world are Harvard University, Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology; in Europe the universities of Cambridge, Oxford and University College London, while in Spain the three first positions of the ranking are the universities of Barcelona, Autónoma de Barcelona and Complurtense de Madrid.

Next week will be published, on 4 June, the edition by subjects of the Center for World University Rankings.
