The UBA maintains its position among the top 50 universities in the world.

Within the top 100, disciplines such as Agriculture, Architecture, Art & Design, Chemical Engineering, Geography, History, and Politics & International Studies were included.

“One of the strategic objectives of our administration is to strengthen the recognition and global integration of UBA. The result of this ranking reflects the significant progress made in terms of internationalization: not only have we consistently improved in all rankings, but we have also expanded academic, scientific, and cultural exchanges and forged high-level global academic alliances, among other achievements in the field,” said Alberto Barbieri, UBA’s rector.

At the national level, UBA secured the number 1 position in all categories, encompassing both public and private institutions. Furthermore, it holds the top position as the university with the highest number of categories included in the ranking—having 34—and stands as the only Argentine institution with disciplines in the top 50.
