The School of Communication of the University of Navarra has once again been ranked among the top one hundred in the world in its subject -more specifically, the issue 75- by one of the rankings of reference letter international sector educational, the QS World University Rankings by subject 2014 - Communication & average Studieswhich is carried out by the British Quacquarelli Symonds (QS). In Europe, School Communication (19th place) stands out especially for its academic reputation (11th place) and its reputation among employers (5th place).

Beyond the general data reflected in the ranking, School is seventh in the world among medium-sized universities (those with fewer than 12,000 students). It is ahead of only six: London School of Economics-LSE, Massachusetts Institute of Technology-MIT, City University of Hong Kong, Yale University, Carnegie Mellon and University of Lancaster. It should be noted that among the top 100 universities, most are 'large' or 'very large'. In this subject ranking, the size of the university is an advantage in some of the indicators analyzed. In addition, in the Communication & average Studies ranking there are universities (Yale, Columbia, Chicago, or the aforementioned LSE or MIT, among others) that have research and Departments in the field of Communication but do not offer Degrees or specific postgraduate degrees.

The ranking data QS Communication & average Studies confirm the trend of other previous programs of study. The School of Communication values its significance as a reflection of its internationalization and the high opinion that its peers have of it. As synthesized by the director of International Office of the School, Francisco J. Pérez Latre, "for us to be among the universities that shape the global conversation on Communication and Media is very important. Not only are we among the top 100 in the world and the top 20 in Europe, but our international partners are also in prominent positions. In addition, several of the best universities in the world appear in the QS ranking, such as MIT, Yale, Stanford, Chicago or Columbia".

Bilingual programs

Of the fifty or so universities with which School has an agreement, six are in the Top 50 of the QS ranking (University of Texas - Austin, fifth in the world according to QS). exchange agreementsix of them are in the Top 50 of the QS ranking (University of Texas - Austin, fifth in the world according to QS- or University of Missouri, University of North Carolina - Chapell Hill, University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign, Monash University or Chinese University of Hong Kong). As a result of these agreements, a good issue of professors and students come to study and teach in our classrooms every year, while professors and students go on exchanges that can last up to one academic year. The growing interest has led the School to implement bilingual programs in Journalism, Audiovisual Communication and Advertising & Public Relations, which include teaching in English, a semester or an internship in one of the universities mentioned above from a wide range of destinations, and the possibility of international internships.

The dean of the School of Communication, Monica Herrero, stressed that "what is important for us is the research and teaching that is carried out in the School, although the QS ranking is a source of joy for everyone as it shows that we are doing things right, and that our process of internationalization is moving in the right direction, as evidenced by the launch of the Center for the Internet Studies and Digital Life, in terms of research, or the new bilingual programs, at the level of professor".
