UArizona cracked the top 100, tying for No. 97 with the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom.

ASU tied for No. 146 with the U.K.’s University of Liverpool.

The list is based on multiple factors that measure academic research performance, as well as each school’s global and regional reputations.

The universities was also ranked by their subjects.
