THE Rankings 2013-2014 (3): Reputation Survey

The data for the World University Rankings 2013-2014 uses data (33% of total rate, on research, and then teaching) from the 2013 World Reputation Ranking. The 2013 World Reputation Ranking's scoring system is more "extreme," in the sense that the top university (Harvard) gets score of 100, and a score of say 30 means 30% of the top university. Below is the total Reputation rank (including teaching and research):

Rank University Reputation Score
1 Harvard 100.0
2 MIT 87.6
3 Cambridge 81.3
4 Oxford 73.0
5 Berkeley 72.4
6 Stanford 70.6
7 Princeton 36.2
8 UCLA 35.6
9 U of Tokyo 35.9
10 Yale 32.8
11 Caltech 27.8
12 Michigan 22.4
13 Columbia 21.4
14 Chicago 21.3
14 Imperial College London 21.3

I am somewhat puzzled by how Caltech gets to the university ranking of number 1 with 33% of the component being so much lower than Harvard? It has to be based on some scaling.

 

Some notes:

1. These top 15 schools, again encompasses the total ranking of top 13, which is chosen by me (the number 13) because it is at that point when HYPMS + CO + CCC has all appeared.

2. The two new schools (beyond the 13) are University of Tokyo -- which is amazing given it probably has lots of Japanese-based research not so well-known outside of Japan -- and U of Michigan.

3. Among the top school, it is worthwile to note the sharp drop-off between Stanford and Princeton.

4. In this list, of my original HYPMS + CO + CCC, HYPMS + CO are featured in the top 10, and CCC are off top 10.
