The fifth best positioned is the Mexican university of Guadalajara followed by the University of Campinas (Brazil), the National of Colombia, the Estácio de Sá (Brazil), the one of Buenos Aires and the Federal of Santa Catarina (Brazil).

UniRank is a leading directory in international higher education with reviews and classifications of more than 13,600 universities and colleges, officially recognized in 200 countries.

The UNAM explained through a statement that the purpose of the selection “is to provide a list of the most recognized Latin American universities.”

This list is based on valid, impartial and non-influenceable web metrics, provided by independent web intelligence sources, instead of data sent by the universities themselves, according to their promoters.

The UNAM, also known in Mexico as “the maximum house of studies” in the country, is a public university with an enrollment of around 350,000 students and 40,000 teachers.

Considered the largest in the country and in Latin America, UNAM was founded in 1910 although it is considered the heir of the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico created on September 21, 1551 with the name Royal University of Mexico.

The Nobel Prize winners in Mexico Alfonso García Robles (from La Paz, 1982), Octavio Paz (from Literatura, 1990) and Mario Molina (from Química, 1995) enrolled in this house of studies. (EFE).
