The prestigious magazine Forbes has particularly valued the performance of the Universidad Católica de Murcia in internationalisationresearch, its personalised teaching model based on small groups and its commitment to educational quality, and has therefore ranked it among the 25 best universities in Spain, out of the 86 universities in our country, both public and private. 

In addition, Forbes recognised the successful professional careers of several of our alumni, who currently hold positions of the highest responsibility and relevance in areas such as the media, business and economics, health sciences and gastronomy, among others. 

The ranking was compiled by an international committee of experts in higher education, which assessed each of the universities in five blocks. The most important section in the assessment is the preparation and employability of students and the management of internships, followed by the category of outstanding alumni and the number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The other three blocks assess the quality of teaching staff and research, the international perspective and the percentage of students with scholarships and accessibility for those with special needs. 

The ranking is based on the criteria accepted internationally by prestigious companies that analyse higher education institutions, such as Shanghai Ranking (Academic Ranking of World Universities), Times Higher Education World University Ranking (THE), QS World University Ranking and the European University Association. 

This ranking confirms the excellent results UCAM obtained recently in the QS, which awarded our university 5 Stars for its educational model, and the THE Impact Ranking, which placed UCAM as the 40th university in the world in terms of educational quality.
