The Times Higher Education BRICS & Emerging Economies Rankings 2014 powered by Thomson Reuters includes only institutions in countries classified as “emerging economies” by FTSE, including the “BRICS” nations of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

The top universities ranking uses the same methodology as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, covering all core missions of a world-class university - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook – using 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators.
