LONDON – Brown University placed in the 81-90 group in a global ranking of universities by reputation.

The list, which is produced by Times Higher Education – a product of the Times of London – asked 17,000 academics around the world to nominate up to 15 of the best universities in their field of expertise.

Scores were based on the number of times that survey respondents marked an institution as “the best.” After the first 50 institutions, universities were listed together in groups of 10, in alphabetical order because the scoring differentials between institutions become very narrow.

Brown University shared the 81-90 ranking with the University of Florida, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology, the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, Leiden University in the Netherlends, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium, Lund University in Sweden, Nanyang Technological University in Signapore and Tel Aviv University in Israel.

Of the academics surveyed, 44 percent came from the U.S., 28 percent were from Europe, 25 percent from Asia and the Middle East and 4 percent from Africa.

To the north, the reputations of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ranked first and second, respectively, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst was tied for 39th.
