The Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings 2017 will be launched at an event in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 14 June.

The annual table of the world’s top 100 most prestigious institutions will be published at 5pm (BST) in London (12pm Massachusetts time). 

The ranking will be formally revealed at THE’s first World Reputation Forum at The Charles Hotel, Harvard Square, Cambridge.

The invitation-only event will bring together experts in higher education branding and strategic communications with sector leaders to share approaches to building and managing reputation. It will also explore how universities can overcome the challenge of engaging successfully with the public in a post-truth environment.

The World Reputation Rankings are based on the results of THE’s annual invitation-only Academic Reputation Survey, which was carried out between January and March 2017. It received responses from more than 10,500 scholars across 137 countries.

The survey asked published academics to outline which universities they perceived to be the best for teaching and research in their specialist discipline. Each respondent was asked to identify institutions worldwide and in their own country and represented many of their peers from their fields and their nation.

The 2017 survey results will also make up two of the 13 performance indicators used to create the THE World University Rankings 2017-18 and related regional rankings.
