LONDON, Nov. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- QS Quacquarelli Symonds, global higher education think-tank and compilers of the world's most-consulted university rankings portfolio, have today released the tenth edition of their annual list of Latin America's best higher education institutions. The regional leader remains Pontifical Catholic University of Chile for the fourth consecutive year.
The 2021 QS World University Rankings: Latin America contains 410 universities and is the most extensive independent comparison of the region's higher education system. The table accounts for eight key indicators of university performance, which capture academic standing, graduate employability, research quality, web presence, and the diversity of each institution's international collaborations.
Ben Sowter, Director of Research at QS, said: "Though Brazil remains the regional higher education powerhouse from a research and representational perspective, its local dominance is a lot less pronounced at the individual indicator level. Only one of its universities ranks among the regional top 30 for graduate employability, and its research impact does not match its raw research productivity."
