Universities and schools are the engines of any knowledge society which holds the responsibility to nurture a generation of brilliant individuals and thought leaders, equipping them with the much-needed know-how as per the requirements of that time.
In this light, it becomes vital to understand and emphasise the crucial role these temples of learning play in building such a significant society.
Considering the kind of innovations, technologies, and methodologies being adapted and introduced in various aspects of higher education by private players so far, it looks pertinent to understand these private universities’ worth in India where there’s a huge shortage of government colleges and universities to cater to a large young brigade of students.
With our country fast emerging as a global hub of higher education under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Indian private universities are rapidly innovating on all fronts to attain global standards and create a niche for themselves.
However, with so many universities claiming to be on top, it seems a Herculean task for students to choose that most suitable institution which could be detrimental for their career. In this wake, ‘The University Ranking: Top Universities of 2017’, the second edition of university ranking carried out by our magazine, aims to shortlist top universities from different zones of India on the basis of various parameters.
We have ranked 60 of the over 350 private universities in the country based on — Infrastructure, Faculty, Global Collaboration, Placement, Industry Interface and Entrepreneurship, and Placement.
