The firm highlighted that there was an improvement in the notoriety of both academics and employees, as well as staff with doctorates and research production.

At the level of academic reputation, PUCE obtained the highest score in the country, but in the region it is ranked 56th. While USFQ is within the top 50 of the most reputable employers. Another aspect that stands out is that of the University of Cuenca, which is among the 100 best in the continent for publications per professor.

Digitization, the challenges of higher education and the quality of teaching in Ecuador

In the case of UDLA, it became the one that improved the most positions in the region, rising 30 positions compared to the ranking of 2022.

The regional list is made up of 428 institutions and is led by the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, followed by the University of São Paulo. Third is the University of Chile, positions that have not changed compared to 2022.

“This year’s edition of our independent audit of Latin American universities reveals an already established regional hierarchy, with no new entries in the top 20. However, this stability, combined with careful analysis of results, also illuminates a roadmap for success,” said Ben Sowter, Senior Vice President of QS. (YO)
