This year's Top 10 also comes to no surprise - Harvard University tops the list for having a perfect score of 100. Followed by the University of Cambridge (84.3), University of Oxford (80.4), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) (77.8), Stanford University (72.1), University of California, Berkeley (60), Princeton University (35), Yale University (33.1), California Institute of Technology (Caltech) (24.1) and Columbia University (21).

 

 

The basis of these rankings are in the methodology of two different pointing systems depending on the factors of an institution's research and teaching reputation. The two scores are combined at a ratio of 2:1, giving more weight to research. The scores are then based on the number of times a university is cited by respondents as the best in their field. Here is the list of the Top 100.
