OP Jindal Global University (JGU) has been ranked as India’s top private university by the QS World University Rankings 2021. Industrialist Naveen Jindal ‘proudly’ shared the news of OP Jindal Global University being declared India’s Number 1 Private University by the QS World University Rankings 2021.
Taking the social media, the steel baron said, “Happy to announce that @JindalGlobalUNI has been ranked India’s No 1 Private University by @worlduniranking. It is an incredibly proud moment for me to see JGU leading the charge in fostering academic excellence in India & the world. JGU rises in QSWUR.”
The top recognition for the JGU came at a time when the total number of Indian institutions have gone down in the QS World University Rankings 2021. The JGU has vastly improved its position in these rankings that were released by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
Established only 11 years ago, the JGU has been ranked in the top 651-700 universities in the world, becoming India’s Number 1 Ranked Private University. The institution has also been declared India’s Number 1 Ranked University with a focus solely on Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.
With a jump of a possible 100 ranks to the 651-700 band this year from the 751-800 band last year, JGU is the only ‘Institution of Eminence’ (IOE) that has climbed up significantly in the QS World University Rankings 2021 compared to the rankings last year.
Climbing up in the QS World University Rankings 2021 and the prestigious recognition of JGU as an ‘Institution of Eminence’ gives hope for a more evolved higher education landscape in India in the coming years.
JGU rises in QSWUR!
