The knowledge society and globalization have impacted higher education, generating a series of changes in recent decades. These changes make reference to the growing demand, widespread growth of enrollment and diversification of higher education institutions, with or without profit, in addition to a large increase in the presence of universities from private sources. Therefore, universities have different missions, thus forming graduates with heterogeneous quality. The quality assurance, therefore, is seen as crucial to safeguard the quality of the academic training of students. In this sense, the aim of this paper is to generate a ranking of universities, for which a spatial arrangement of 52 Chilean universities is carried out in a scatter plot, using for this purpose the variables of institutional accreditation and return of equity, besides using the average of both. These two aspects conceive in forming four groups of universities, thus generating a new approach for the analysis of existing universities in Chile.
