Shekhar A Bhattacharjee, Chief Executive Officer & Founder of Great Place to Study Research Institute said, “An institution needs great determination and commitment to apply for Great Place to Study Certification. Given the changing needs of learning in this era, a Great Place to Study should not just offer a respected faculty and quality lectures, but also run comprehensive educational programmes to hone the personality of students and nurture them into responsible citizens of the world. We evaluate educational institutions on a number of important criteria before giving the certification.”
A great institute cannot be defined with only great courses, infrastructure, andragogy and faculty. In 21st century to assure great learning, an institution must focus and ensure right measurement of learning objective, learning outcome, life on campus and happiness quotient for the students.
“Certification conferred by Great Place to Study Research Institute to a university or a college is beyond independent rating. It is about global commitment towards uplifting standards, practices and sustainability. We are happy that a number of educational institutions in India are working consciously to raise the standards of education and learning, and our certification serves to recognise their efforts,” said Arvina Purkayastha, Co-founder, SkillTree Knowledge Consortium.
“Indo-British relations were given yet another boost and it was my pleasure hosting the 2nd GLI Certification ceremony by Great Place to Study Research Institute. Promoting the partnership between UK and India’s education system has always been a key aim for me,” said Rt Hon Virendra Sharma, MP.
