A list of top 100 universities with best global reputations for 2018

How about another accolade for Harvard?

Harvard University secured the No. 1 spot on the THE Reputation Rankings, an influential listing of the world’s top 100 most powerful university brands.

American universities continue to dominate the list, with forty-four institutions in the Top 100. Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Stanford took the overall top 3 spots.

Guess all that talk about changing the world isn’t just for show.

The list is based on the results of an invitation-only opinion survey of more than 10,000 senior academics around the world.

Harvard was ranked No. 1 on the US News “Best Global Universities” list; No. 3 on the CEOWORLD magazine’s “Best Universities In The World Rankings;” and No. 3 on the QS Top Universities “World University Rankings.”
