Orodha mpya ya kila mwaka ya vyuo vikuu bora zaidi duniani imetangazwa, ambapo chuo kikuu cha Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) cha Marekani bado kinaongoza.

Vyuo vikuu vya Stanford na Harvard – pia kutoka Marekani – kadhalika vimeendelea kushikilia nafasi ya pili na ya tatu mtawalia.

Orodha hiyo ilishirikisha vyuo vikuu karibu 1,000.
