‘There is a lot of hard work behind this 5-star rating; in our day-to-day work we place the student at the centre of what we do, seeking the best for them, which requires going beyond ourselves in all the areas that this ranking evaluates and in others, transmitting the values of Christian humanism,’ said the UCAM president, who headed the Universidad Católica delegation at the international congress of Higher Education institutions 'QS Higher Ed Summit: Americas 2023', held this week in the Dominican Republic.

The prestigious firm which specialises in the analysis of higher education institutions around the world, Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), has especially praised UCAM for its teaching model, the inclusivity of its university campuses, its internationalisation, online education and commitment to its students. It also rated UCAM with a high score in employability. Along with UCAM, which improves its ranking, only 7 Spanish Higher Education institutions have this QS Stars Rating.
