Title QS University Rankings: Latin America
Author Angel Calderon - RMIT University, Melbourne

Abstract

QS released its second Latin American University Rankings on 13 June 2012. As a contrast to the volatility expected in these exercises, the standing of the top seven Latin American universities remained unchanged between 2011 and 2012. QS attributes this stability to its methodology, in which five out of the seven measures are given equal weight (10%). But the results highlight the gulf that exists between the leading universities and the rest in terms of the quality and robustness of data available for describing and assessing the quality of institutions. This may not be a characteristic of universities per se but rather of the national systems they are part of.
