Harvard University holds first place in the THE World Reputation Rankings 2014, followed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University in second and third place respectively. In total, there are four Dutch universities in the top 100: Delft University of Technology (position 42), the UvA (71-80), Leiden University (81-90) and Utrecht University (81-90). From position 51, range groups are used because the differences in scores are too small.
