Las mejores universidades del mundo siguen estando en Estados Unidos

En el ranking del año 2020, las universidades de Estados Unidos encabezaban las primeras posiciones y para el 2021 aún lo siguen liderando, ya que hubo poco movimiento en estas primeras posiciones.

El Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT) obtuvo el primer puesto constituyéndose como la mejor universidad del mundo para el 2021, la Universidad de Stanford y la Universidad de Harvard se encuentran en segunda y tercera posición; en la cuarta posición está el California Institute of Technology (Caltech) que subió de posición, y en quinto lugar la Universidad de Oxford que sigue siendo la mejor universidad del Reino Unido.

Sin embargo, aparte de este buen desempeño, hay señales preocupantes tanto para los Estados Unidos como para el Reino Unido, ya que la mayoría de estas universidades han caído en la clasificación en términos globales. En la mayoría de los casos, esto se debe a un puntaje más bajo para la proporción de estudiantes internacionales, uno de los indicadores utilizados para compilar el ranking.

Las 3 mejores universidades colombianas

En este nuevo ranking, de las 3 universidades colombianas que aparecen en las 500 mejores universidades del mundo, hay 2 de ellas que subieron de escalafón, mientras que la tercera bajo posiciones (Universidad Externado – Bogotá):

  • Universidad de los Andes – Bogotá. En el 2020 en la posición 236º y 2021 en la posición 227º
  • Universidad Nacional – Bogotá. En el 2020 en la posición 254º y 2020 en la posición 259º
  • Universidad Javeriana – En el 2020 en la posición 368º y ahora ocupa el puesto 426º
