DURBAN - The United Kingdom-based magazine Times Higher Education released their annual analysis of the best universities to study business and economics in the world.

Times Higher Education did a rating of the top 200 universities compared to their normal top 100. 

The universities were evaluated on 13 things including, teaching (the learning environment), research (volume, income and reputation, citations (research influence), industry income (knowledge transfer) and international outlook (staff, students, and research). 

Two of the institutions that are ranked are Ivy League universities, Harvard University and University of Pennsylvania. An Ivy League university is thought to be the most prestigious universities of all the institutions in the United States. 

Universities are based in the United States of America and the United Kingdom dominate the top 10 of the list. Overall the top 200 list is made up of 200 colleges and universities from 27 different nations across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
