MIT was placed first while Harvard University and the University of Cambridge second and third respectively.

The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was placed in the positions 471-480 and the University of Crete in 491-500. Seeing two Greek institutions in a list with the world’s top universities shows that, despite its structural problems, the academic community in Greece is resisting the financial crisis.
