U.S. News and World published its rankings of universities worldwide in fall of 2014. So, how do Latin America’s universities hold up? Brazil dominates the regional rankings, with 8 of the 12 universities that made the list. Chile has two universities included while Argentina and Mexico each have one university. Most strikingly, however, is that only one university makes it into the top 100 globally: Universidade de São Paolo, at 77. Spanish-speaking Latin America’s universities do not make an appearance until Universidad de Buenos Aires at 260.
Some will argue that the methodology is skewed toward U.S. evaluation standards. But one need only look at the countries that have made the leap from the global periphery to developed status—countries that have lifted millions of their people into the middle classes—to see that even if the rankings reflect a U.S. bias, they have some relationship too with global success.
