The various international rankings that assess the quality of scientific research in universities place CEU-UCH at the top of the 23 Spanish private universities. In these studies, which apply, inter alia, scientific production criteria of the research production as well as the number of international publications and the number of citations of its authors, the CEU-UCH always ranks among the top four private universities in research. In both aspects, the growth of the CEU-UCH has been steady in recent years.

According to the Shanghai Jiao Tong University which applies to Spanish universities criterion which develops the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), the CEU-UCH is the second Spanish private university, after the University of Navarra, in terms of research excellence. This ranking takes into account criteria such as the number of articles in index-linked publications by the Science Citation Index-Expanded and Social Science Citation Index in the year prior to evaluation.[7][8]
