How the universities have been ranked?

A total of 13 separate performance metrics have been considered while ranking these universities. The parameters include teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.

The 2023 edition is based on an analysis of over 15.5 million research publications – and over 112 million citations to those publications – as well as a survey of more than 40,000 academics worldwide on the international academic reputation of each school, on top of data on institutional income and faculty demographics, including international talent recruitment and research collaboration, World Economic Forum has cited. 

It is to be noted here, that although the US still remains the most distinguished in the top 10 rankings, several East  Asian and Middle East universities have also started making their presence felt. A total of 19 universities from East Asia have grabbed their spot in the top 100 rankings, with China leading the way. Meanwhile, only 34 universities in the US could make the cut this year. Household names like Dartmouth College, and great regional powerhouse universities including Ohio State and Michigan State lose their top 100 status.
