The U-Ranking of Spanish Universities (Synthetic Indicators of Spanish Universities) is a joint initiative of the BBVA Foundation and the Valencian Institute of Economic Research (IVIE). In the 8th edition 2020, a total of 70 universities, 48 publics and 22 private, are analyzed, covering 97% of the Spanish University System in terms of number of undergraduate students and analyzing more than 3,300 degrees and double degrees.

  • U-Ranking, which ranks universities based on performance- teaching and research and innovation- by size of the institution to make them comparable.

The two dimensions analysed by this ranking are: teaching, research and innovation.
