UPF goes up in the QS subjects ranking

UPF has improved on, or consolidated, its position in all the disciplines evaluated in the subjects rankings publicized by QS. Out of the eleven fields evaluated, the University’s position for Economics and Econometrics was significant, placing it first in Spain and among the top eight worldwide, as well as Social Politics and Administration, a discipline that QS has evaluated for the first time this year and in which UPF has ranked among the top one hundred in the world.

For the remaining subjects, the University is ranked in the block of the 150 best universities in the world in the areas of Accounting and Finance; Communication and Media Studies, and Linguistics. Closely following this, other subjects where it also stands out are Law, Politics and International Relations, Sociology, and Modern Languages (151-200) and finally, in the fields of Medicine and Biology (301-350).
